Looking to put a little “Wow” into your program? Whether this is your first or your 81st storytime, you might need some inspiration and fresh ideas to make your story program exciting for the children and for you.

Miss Patty will share some tricks to engage little people, explore ways to offer early literacy activities in your library, and show ways to get your little ones movin’ and groovin’.

The afternoon will highlight the talents of CKLS librarians who have volunteered to show some of their best Storytime material. Plan to leave with a bag of awesome freebies and brand new children’s books from the free book giveaway.

Please bring a favorite craft or activity (with instructions) to display at the workshop.

The list of materials to bring to the workshop will be sent through the CKLS Googlegroup.
