New Year!

Happy New Year!

What was the most interesting thing you learned about, or explored, or tried, this year in Youth Services?

For me, it was starting to think about Library 2.0 and the Transparent Library stuff, in terms of children and children's libraries, in a more systematic manner. I'm not very far along yet, but as we think about ways of encouraging patron interaction with the library and its processes, in person and on the web, we should be thinking about how to include children as well. I'll post more on this later in the month!

The most interesting thing I've learned this past year was storytime. I started as a PSS in June and was assigned to do storytimes. In '08 I learned to do a couple family storytimes, but over the last few weeks, I gained a lot more knowledge for doing them as I will officially begin on Tuesday! It's very exciting and I am very happy to have gained so much knowledge through my co-workers to help me along.
