Welcome to September! It’s library card sign up month! Fall starts soon! Pumpkin spice! Halloween candy! It’s month nine of the looooongest year on record, and while this month’s edition of The Scoop does not contain any life hacks to make time go faster, it does have some tips for helping you prepare for the next few months. Find information on take-home kits, upcoming grants, and learn about a NEW version of LiLI designed for school-age kids. And let’s not forget all the fall conferences – they’re virtual! You can finally attend a library conference from the comfort of your home (and maybe in your pajamas?). Don’t feel like planning anything? You can procrastinate by reading this month’s newsletter over and over again. Enjoy!
