Since we are knee-deep in summer reading planning at my library, I thought I'd share some of the awesome resources we are using for this summer's CSLP theme of "One World, Many Stories."
Marketing and Public Relations:
Half-page flyers (these will be distributed through the elementary schools as well as in the library & community)
Full page flyer (these will be on our bulletin boards throughout the building)
I can email you the flyers as .pub files if you'd like to modify them for your library. Just email me.
Beyond the Book Storytimes (AMAZING blog for storytelling. I wish I had the staffing to do the group events, but I will be adapting many of the ideas posted)
I also love the Texas State Library for putting their summer reading manuals online. They have wonderful storytime ideas. Thanks, TX!
Of course there is the CSLP manual if you are in a participating state.
Here are some of my favorite storytime planning books for this summer:
Storytime Magic by Kathy MacMillian and Christine Kirker
Once Upon a Time: Using Storytelling, Creative Drama and Readers Theater with Children in Grades PreK-6 by Judy Freeman
So, those are my top tips for this summer! Please let me know if you have any that I may have missed. Happy summer reading!
