Flannel Friday Roundup 8-22-14

I'm happy to be hosting the weeks roundup!  There were some really fun submissions!

A Librarian Less Ordinary shared how she made a portable, lightweight, magnetic felt board.

Literary Commentary shared her very versatile and and goregous flannel pieces for Ten Red Apples by Pat Hutchins.

Jane from Piper Loves the Library (one of my favorite FF contributors!) serves a very diverse community.  Her newest flannel friend is going to represent this amazing community.  Read her post about diverse flannels.

One Little Librarian created some adorable pop-up puppets and shared a rhyme to use with them.

Fun With Friends At Storytime shared her sparkly set of tea pots and matching cups - one for every day of the week!  Read about her tea pots and the rhyme she uses with them here

Storytime With The Library Lady makes playing the ukulele look easy!  If you don't play an instrument, you can always sing this song a cappella.  You can watch a video of her playing and singing "There's a Dog in School".  It's such a fun song!

Storytime Schedule Changes @ the Perry Branch!

Hello Friends!

I know that when I last saw you in July I said something like, "Everything will resume in September!"

I was wrong!  There have been some significant changes to the programming schedule.  It will take some getting used to but until / if the staffing situation changes at Perry, this will be the new schedule.

The most notable change is that I will not being doing specific programs for toddlers (Wiggle Worms) and preschoolers anymore.  Instead I'll be doing programs for "All-Ages" (2-5 year olds).  The All-Ages programs held on Wednesday mornings will require registration.  The days have also changed and I am offering one less storytime session a week.

I am happy to answer any questions on a individual basis in the comments or at

PLEASE share these changes with anyone you know who attends storytimes at Perry.

See you soon!

Starting in September:

Tuesdays at 10:30 a.m.: Babytime (0-24 months)
*Wednesdays at 9:30 and 10:30 a.m.: All-Ages Storytime (2-5 years)
Thursdays at 6:00 p.m.:  Evening All-Ages Storytime (all family member welcomed to attend!)

* Registration required

You can visit our online calendar by going to the MCLD home page.  Events -> Perry
Please read the program descriptions for more details.

 I hope to see you soon!
