Let’s Supercharge Our Storytimes Together!

2018 December 12
by Bethany Wilson

Storytimes are at the very heart of library services and provide children with some of their first experiences with stories, songs, rhymes and group play. You’re already doing great storytimes – supercharge your practice to make them even better!

By implementing a few simple early literacy strategies in your storytimes, you become a cornerstone in children’s literacy development. Whether you’re new to storytimes or a seasoned provider, the free online Supercharged Storytimes course will help you take it to the next level.

Starting January 8, Texas librarians can join Bethany Wilson, TSLAC Youth Services Consultant, and work through the course together. Bethany is coordinating a series of discussions and workshops to compliment the Supercharged Storytimes curriculum, providing youth librarians across Texas with unique opportunities to share successes and challenges and stay motivated to complete the course.
