Good Ideas and Goodbyes

Two clever ideas (sorry for the bad photos) from Oregon libraries for supporting children’s literacy and parent’s involvement:

From the Hood River Library, a magnetic picture frame that provides information on library locations and hours, holds a picture of baby, and gives directions on how to receive free books from the libraHood river picture framery for your baby at 3 month intervals.

From the Umatilla County CalendarUmatilla County Special Library District’s Take Off! program, an early literacy calendar. And to show that there is nothing new under the sun, May features my favorite fingerplay when I was a children’s librarian.




And a goodbye… My colleague, Curtis Keifer, the manager of children’s services at my local library, the Corvallis Benton County Library, will be retiring tomorrow after 20 years in Corvallis. I refer you to a very nice article in our local paper. So long, Curtis, we’ll miss you!
