The Matheson Memorial Library's Facebook page features a great album called Behind the Scenes at the Library. I love this album. Every year SRP ends and people act like we've closed the whole department. We offer significantly less programming in August compared the schedule for June and July. Of course we are just preparing for the fall, but patrons sometimes think we are all on vacation. Happily The Matheson Memorial Library of Elkhorn, Wisconsin has tackled the patrons' very important questions :
Did you ever wonder what we do at the library when there are no children's programs? Take a peek to see what's happening behind the scenes over the next few weeks!I would be thrilled to have an album like this for our library. My To Do list is quite lengthy.
Does your library have programing breaks? How do you use the time? I told my storytime kids I had to take a break to clean the craft supply closet and all the storytime props. What reasoning to you give to parents and kids who want a full events calendar year round?
