We just wrapped up our Fall Programming season this week at our library. We divide our program year into quarters and always have a break in between, ranging from two to four weeks. We use the time to plan storytimes and other programs, develop a new story or two, and put some energy into sometimes-neglected parts of our jobs, such as collection development (not like we don't do that all year, it's just that December's a great time to catch up).
So I'm afraid I won't be posting any new stories here for about a month. Weekly posts will resume around January 15th. Meanwhile, I'll continue to post a new video each week on the "Storytelling with Puppets" youtube channel. Coming this weekend: "Anansi the Spider" by Gerald McDermott.
