Page history last edited by Jane McManus 2 years, 9 months ago

Libraries are more than books. Some kids need a little direction to get the creative juices flowing. This was inspired by ALSC Webinar, Family Programs on a Shoestring, 7-2011, by Angela Young. Please add YOUR comments. Your colleagues would appreciate hearing what works, and what didn't!
