We're unlimited for ours at DFT - 1,200 books max!
Lynn Montague
12:46
And there are no extra prizes attached
Heather Kent
16:21
Our building is still closed - which causes a barrier with SRP.
Patty Hoggatt
16:42
CBR offers paper as well. I won't know how many for sure until they turn in at the end.
Brittany Gitzlaff
21:20
We have them in our lobby and change it each week. We haven't advertised it all and it's been a huge hit!
Raechel Schink
21:45
DFT has been putting out a variety of craft grab bags. They sit in our lobby just inside the front door.
Bethany Hultgren
21:46
We've been doing a crafting kit once a month. Glass Stone Magnets, DiY scratch art, make your own bubble kits, and stomp rockets.
Bethany Hultgren
22:04
They've been pretty popular.
Michelle Veeneman
22:51
we put out Take and Makes weekly when we have curbside. They have been very popular.
Jody DelaGardelle
23:40
I’ve been creating activity bags every week. We’ve had limited access to children’s area and about 20-30 bags go out each week.
Raechel Schink
24:02
Heather that is awesome!
Gail Moynihan
25:05
Thanks for the bag ideas!
Brooke Mathews
25:11
We've also been putting out weekly grab and go bags, they've been a BIG hit! I set out 2 laundry baskets by our service window, one labeled Pre-K, which coincides with our ST weekly theme and then a School-aged bag, which is usually a STEM project. We've done about 150 bags a week. This week ours flew out and I made more to bring in yesterday!
Patty Hoggatt
26:05
Yes!
Karen Wendt
27:49
Sooo sorry I was late. Was on phone with tech support for our email newsletter
Bethany Hultgren
29:38
I would love some craft uses for paper bags (aside from puppets).
Mary Ostrander
32:17
Christi is going to make a castle out of paper bags on Monday for open art at Verona
Lynn Montague
32:35
But we all realize that virtual school through public school is NOT homeschooling, correct?
Lynn Montague
32:45
That is not appropriate
Lynn Montague
32:56
Responding to Karen
Lynn Montague
34:02
Promoting businesses through the library is not appropriate
Heather Kent
34:02
I think working with the schools on this type of thing is key. Lynn is right - virtual school through public school is different. A LOT of the home school businesses are religious organizations - which is something you want to be aware of.
Murray Johnson
34:16
Did Andrea bring enough to share with everyone else.
Andrea Schmitz
34:59
Oh Murray, wish I had!
Bethany Hultgren
35:00
There are curriculum makers too, but yeah I don't know if we could really provide such a list.
Lynn Montague
35:09
I agree Heather -- working with school districts is key
Karen Wendt
39:12
This type of thing... https://wiva.k12.com/
Jody DelaGardelle
39:23
Badgerlink is awesome!
Karen Wendt
40:14
I get questions about finding books for kids reading levels.
Heather Kent
42:25
I have been creating book bundles off of children's reading levels. The parents tell me what their F&P level is and I go through the lexile and materials that we have to create appropriate book groupings for them. Novelist is great - but take it with a grain of salt for reading levels.
Heather Kent
44:42
I do a chapter a day book club where I post videos each day. This month is "One Crazy Summer" which is wonderful.
Karen Wendt
49:30
Torrey Maldonado
Heather Kent
54:17
MCF just bought Zoom with the Webinar module.
Lynn Montague
58:18
Our city attorney told us the permissions were not a thing
Lynn Montague
58:46
That a closed program was just like a library program in-person
Karen Wendt
59:00
I tell parents that it is their responsibility to turn off the video to their cameras before we go live to FB.
Karen Wendt
59:20
And we edit their names to delete the last names.
Heather Kent
01:01:19
That's good to know. I'll feel much more comfortable doing book clubs via zoom in the fall.
Karen Wendt
01:04:00
CCBC shorts, will be on Wednesdays again?
Bethany Hultgren
01:05:01
beanstack this fall/winter challenges
Gail Moynihan
01:05:09

Mary Ostrander
01:05:12
Thanks everyone
Karen Wendt
01:05:20
Thank you
Patty Hoggatt
01:05:20
Thanks!
Heather Kent
01:05:22
Thank you!
Andrea Schmitz

Thank you !!
