After Storyime Underground shut down this past year, it left a hole in alot of our work lives. The sharing, answers to questions, deep dive into thorny issues, peer-to-peer connectivity and cool ideas are greatly missed.
But all is not lost. Kim Niesing, Youth and Inclusive Library Consultant for Monarch Library System, recently shared a discovery she made. She writes in her weekly system youth services email: "Missing the Facebook group, Storytime Underground, which was retired a few months ago? I found a comparable Facebook group. It is much smaller in membership, but it is a very active group. It is called Storytime Solidarity." The page was created by a longtime member of SU who wanted to share storytime and early literacy tips. It's worth a look.
