‘Hot’ July is here and, thank goodness, so is National Ice Cream Month! While the virus continues to wreak havoc on many states and some of our Idaho communities, libraries continue to create, innovate, and originate new approaches and fresh ideas to deliver library services and reach out to the members of our communities. The July issue of The Scoop captures some of these innovative ideas (see “Featured: Re-Imagining Summer Reading” and “Library to Library: Outreach for Underserved Children”) and offers some wonderful new opportunities ( see “Kindergarten Ready Corner: Ready! for Kindergarten™ Workshop Offer” and “Tweens and Teens: Transforming Teen Services Trainings”). As usual, this newsletter is jam-packed with lots of resources, tips and tools, and even a raffle drawing! May July find you staying cool in the shade and enjoying lots of fresh air!
