February 2016


this week

Wow! What a week! February vacation was packed with fantastic shows in towns all over the map! Concord Library, a first for me, had a large crowd and Nahant Library, an annual visit, had the biggest crowd I ever had there! Hingham Library and Acushnet Library both had large groups - all of which made me very happy to see people coming out to hear some tales!

Raising a Reader has been going swimmingly at the Holmes Library - but we do have space if anyone wants to join. Also, we are starting up in Plympton at 1:30 - so if you’d like to join in come and try it out! It’s loads of fun!

If you would like to schedule a time for me to visit your school or library please give me a call at (508) 641-5336.

Here is the storytelling schedule for this week:

  • Wednesday: Little People’s College @ 10:00am
  • Thursday: Sherborn Library @ 3:30pm
  • Friday: Holmes Library @ 1:00pm *Raising a Reader
  • Saturday: Plympton Library @ 1:00pm *Raising a Reader

Please check the Upcoming Shows page for more information on all of these shows. All of the Raising a Reader programs are being funded by the South Shore Community Action Council and are an off-shoot of my Building Stories from the years prior. They are a lot of fun and will give plenty for the little ones to do! Come on by and have a blast and learn a few techniques for telling tales at home!

Places I will be visiting this week:

  1. New Bedford
  2. Sherborn
  3. Halifax
  4. Plympton

If you’ve ever had a chance to hear The Bunny Bird then you’ll already know where the idea from this cartoon came from. It’s even funny without the knowing the story - but that knowledge maybe makes it better? I’m not sure - but it sounds good!

Obviously we will reschedule the Raising a Reader scheduled for today at the Paul Pratt Library. Hopefully for later this week. I will keep you posted!

Also - a quick idea on how to get rid of all this snow:

this week

It certainly seems like we’re making up for lost time in the snow department! Of course, I can’t complain too much as my daughter and I were able to spend Friday snuggled together watching Ghostbusters and Back to the Future parts 1 & 2! As nice as that was, though, it felt even better to get back with my Building Stories group at the Plymouth Library! This coming week we are having our final Building Stories and PAC TV will be there to cover the event!

We rescheduled the Raising a Reader at the Holmes Library this past Friday due to the snow. We will be reconvening this Friday at 1:00. Again, sorry for the inconvenience but this is New England so we’re used to this sort of thing!
