I've been working on pulling everything together to start a 1000 Books program at my library. The inspiration started with a Summer Reading Program workshop I attended last spring. Marge Loch-Wouters over at Tiny Tips for Library Fun was presenting and shared tips (literally) and other useful information with us and I was super excited to start planning mine. Seeing as how I am the entire youth services department, it has taken awhile to get all my ducks in a row and organized into a program that I am ready to run. I am almost there.
1000 Books Map I made with my Google account. I've spent hours looking at program ideas and just added the libraries I looked at to my map. I'm sure I missed many libraries. Please let me know if I need to add a library that is joining this wonderful early literacy revolution!!
