The Scoop - November, 2019

“The clocks have rolled back and evening comes a bit earlier this time of year ~ more time for you to snuggle up and pour over this month’s issue of The Scoop! Our newsletter this month highlights some pretty useful resources (Talking is Teaching, Story Time from Space, Summer Reading Manuals), some wonderful grant opportunities (Autism is Welcome Here, Innovation in Teen Services) and some exciting program models (Baby Doll Story Time, Harry Potter Celebration). Don’t forget to check out the “Book Look” as there are many (too many to include) great books coming out in the next few months from some of our favorite authors and series.  As always, let us know what your library is up to (send us a blurb and a pic) and we’ll include it in next month’s “Library to Library” section of The Scoop. Happy Fall!”
