It was absolutely incredible to be in that conference room with all those library folk at the CSLP (Collaborative Summer Library Program) national conference. There were some power house people there – even Caldecott and Newbery Committee members!
The winning slogans for the UNDERGROUND theme of 2013 are:
- Children's Slogan - "Dig Into Reading"
- Teen Slogan - "Beneath the Surface"
- Adult Slogan - "Groundbreaking Reads"
Another great opportunity I had in Arizona was to visit my friend’s Kindergarten class in Page. Since Page is in the Navajo Nation, most of my friend's students are Navajo. Arizona is a CSLP member state like North Carolina, so these children will have the opportunity to do "One World, Many Stories" this summer at their library just like us. Isn’t that neat to think about?
If anyone would like to see the storytime I did with the Kinders in Page AZ, check out the Alexander County Library Children’s Page on Facebook. I told them my Wide Mouth Frog story. They were a hoot!
Thanks Ms. Mel for that little peek into the world of library politics! And speaking of hoots - Wide Mouth Frog really rocks!
