About Me
Hi! My name is Anne Clark and I've been a youth services librarian for over 15 years. Most recently, I coordinated children's services for a public library in Michigan. I now work in a public school, where I split my time between helping out in the K-12 media centers and coordinating after-school and summer enrichment programs. I have a master's degree in library science and a bachelor's degree in writing. In 2014, I was honored by the Michigan Library Association with the Frances H. Pletz Award for Excellence in Service to Youth.

 I am proud to be one of the original organizers of the Flannel Friday project and on the planning team of the Michigan KidLib Unconference, a free professional development opportunity for current and aspiring youth services librarians and paraprofessionals in the Michigan area.

About the Blog
I've been writing this blog since I was a student in library school. Over the years I've learned so much and am glad to have this blog as an outlet to help other librarians. I try to share a little bit of everything. 

Many of my project patterns are free to download from my Teachers Pay Teachers store

Wonder why "So Tomorrow" is the name of this blog? Here's your answer!

I hope to do more speaking in the future, so please contact me if you have an opportunity in the United States that might be a good fit. I am particularly interested in virtual presenting opportunities! 

I presented on blogging (with Travis from 100 Scope Notes) at the Michigan Library Association's 2012 Spring Institute in Ann Arbor. I presented at the 2013 Spring Institute conference in Lansing with Sara and Anna.We talked about programming ideas and tips for librarians in a time crunch.

 I co-presented a Guerrilla Storytime with Lisa Mulvenna and Megan Goedge at the 2014 SI in Battle Creek. In April of 2014 I presented "Aww 'Chute: Children's Programming Activities with Parachutes, Scarves and Other Props" at the Small and Rural Libraries Conference on Mackinac Island.

In March of 2013, I was part of a panel of youth librarians who did a webinar for the Pennsylvania Library Association on summer reading planning.

I have also co-presented webinars for the Library of Michigan in 2019 and 2020, as a member of the state's Youth Services Advisory Council. 

My Writing Elsewhere
I wrote an article called "Pinterest for Librarians" that appeared in the November/December 2012 issue of Library Media Connection. I am interested in writing more for library journals, etc. in the future. I have also guest posted at Storytime Underground and Green Bean Teen Queen
