Try running your program once a week for 6 weeks.  When the children and
caregivers come every week they become friends.  The repetition of your
songs and rhymes becomes familiar to them and they can join in easily.

I have to say ditto to the response below. We never use volunteers to staff
a public service desk. They do behind-the-scenes tasks, such as craft
preparation, shelving, photocopying, etc.

WE do not use volunteers at public desks in any part of the library.  Our
volunteers in the children's area do read shelves and shelve books, but

Once again I come to you asking for your help to think outside the box.  How
do you use volunteers in the children's area?

Administration won't put a desk in the children's area but they believe it
needs to be monitored.  Their answer is to put volunteers in.  What kind of
things/projects do you use to attract volunteers to your library?

Make your storytime area look like a sleep over even if it isn't. Lay out
pillows and blankets on the floor. Have cookies and milk or Kool Aid set out
to drink along with some colourful cups and napkins. Setup a couple of soft
light lamps with a variety of books from which you will choose to read.
Dress some of your favorite puppets up in pj's and place them around the
pillows. Now get a camera take a few pictures. Using Print Shop or another
graphic software, print out the pictures in at least 2 X 2 pictures with a
caption like. "Not yet ready for bed storytime." or "Slip into some warm,
cozy stories."  If you make it a 45 minute storytime, you might want to
invite parents to spend the last fifteen minutes reading to their children.
Leave some books around in small stacks from which parents can choose.

Subject: SRP compilation website??? Keeping stats.
MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain
Date: Mon,  7 Jan 2002 12:35:11 CST

Is there a web site aimed at librarians that posts successful SRP's? I'd
like to see if other libraries keep
statistics differently or similarly than the way we always have.
Our past children's librarian had children registered on index cards.
When children visited each week, we would take out their card, mark how
many titles were read, give them a sticker, initial their reading log,
have them post a themed marker on a bulletin board and have them choose
a used book as a prize. This requires having summer students to man our
SRP desk, and or circ and reference staff when they are not available.
When there is a line after a program, or with parents bringing multiple
kids this can get pretty backed up.
I've read about counting minutes instead...
Ths SRP how-to books we have aren't very detailed about statistic
keeping on a weekly basis.
Do any of you do a self-service type of sign-in or collect weekly
reading logs instead.
Please recommend your own web site if you think it would help.

Thanks,

I use "baby" rhythm instruments with my lapsdit program. These are
specifically designed for little one; they have a hande to make shaking
easier. This type of instrument is usually available from school supply
stores such as Lakshore. I also use the same books quite often. We have one
title that is sort of our transition tool.The title is Oh, where, Oh where
has my little bear gone. I also use a pop-up puppet to start the program.
And often I will have a puppet that can "help" share a book. For example, a
duck goes with the book Hello Little Ducklings. We do a weekly lapsit here;
it seems to help the children to be in the group regularly and the moms love
the time together.

Hi - we don't offer specific space unless a counselor reserves a study room,
but I have seen children meeting with counselors here after school, just
sitting together at a table or in chairs near one another and talking. Being
a public space, I think any public library would be able to offer a
relatively quiet place to sit and talk quietly. As far as arranging the
counselor, I would be wary of liability and things like that. Perhaps if a
seperate agency were involved and just used your space they would be covered
under their own insurance or guidelines.

Our Lapsit program meets weekly..... dropin and variable in numbers
attending, but very well received.

The only thing I do that I didn't read in your description is that
I pull a bin of board books out for each session, and keep it covered at
first, then when the attention begins to wander we have the little ones come
choose a book and take it back to Mom or Dad or Nana or whoever's lap for
one on one reading time, then we sing our goodbye song.

Good luck.....

Maybe this will help your program.   Perhaps what is lacking is frequency..=
i do the program weekly!  Babies grow very fast and coming just once a =
month means everything is new again.  If they hear the songs frequently =
they are excited to come...babies need repetition.  Hope this helps

Hi everyone,
I apologize if this topic has been discussed before - I've been in and out
of following this listserv closely. My library is hosting an Islam program
for adults, in which members of the local mosque are coming to discuss and
field questions the community may have about Islam. I've been asked to
provide a program for children during this time. The program will be out in
the children's area, so it can't get too elaborate - nor too age-specific. I
have a few ideas of stories to learn and tell, but have been stumped on
activities. If any of you have participated in similar programs, I'd love to

 We are working on a Winnie-the-Pooh birthday party and have come across

no Winnie bookmarks for sale.  We did find some to print, but we will need
quite a lot and would, frankly, rather buy them.
The same is true for the "Pin-the-whatever on who-ever"--can enlarge and
color something, but would rather buy it 'good to go'.   The Disney Stores
have nothing available along this line for purchase.  I would appreciate any
information anyone can send about these items; we will rapidly be running

Subject: something missing in Lapsit program


for those working with babies ages 0-24months:

Our lapsit program began in October.  Once a month, 6x a year.

This is how we describe it:  "It will be a lovely, noisy time.  The
babies will listen to very short stories, play little games, and listen
to all of us sing nursery rhymes to them.  Afterwards, the adults can
visit and enjoy snacks while the little ones play together."

Gisela (the lady who does the program) can feel that something is
missing but can't figure out what.  She had done it 3x now and knows
that it needs something that will have the patrons thinking, "This is
great.  We will come back next month."

The babies do hand motions and sing songs, but Gisela thinks that maybe
the babies making music somehow is what she needs.  She has gone to
websites of other libraries to see what their programs are like, but
they all seem to be like what she already has.

Any ideas about what is missing?

third grade class around forty years ago. She believes the
author's name was Campbell and the story was about five
chipmunks.  She thinks the title was Eenie, Meenie, Miney, Moe and
Still Moe but we don't have an exact spelling.  I've tried our
catalog and WorldCat with no luck.  Does this sound familiar to
anyone.  Please reply directly to me.  Thanks very much,
Kim Flores

During this difficult time, librarians must continue to be at the =
forefront of efforts to preserve and promote access to information and =
free expression, not an easy task anywhere, any time.=20

In this light, we need your help today.=20

On March 20, 2001, the American Library Association (ALA) filed suit to =
challenge the Children's Internet Protection Act (CIPA). This Act requires =
public libraries that receive federal funding to install and enforce the =
use of blocking software on all computers with Internet access.=20

ALA filed suit, not only because of the flawed nature of filtering =
software, but also because CIPA violates the First Amendment and hinders =
the ability of libraries to fulfill their responsibility to provide access =
to information.=20

A trial date has been set for March 25, 2002. For the most current =
information on the legal challenge, please visit http://www.ala.org/cipa=20=


In order to meet funding needs for this legal challenge, ALA launched its =
campaign to raise $1.3 million for the CIPA Legal Fund. Thanks to many ALA =
member libraries, divisions, chapters, affiliates, and others, we are =
nearly halfway to our fund-raising goal.=20

Please visit http://www.ala.org/cipa/cipalegalfund.html to make your gift =
to the CIPA Legal Fund and join ALA in our fight to protect intellectual =
freedom and equity of access. Please consider a contribution that will =
express your personal commitment to keeping Americas libraries safe from =
censorship.=20

By defending intellectual freedom, even during times of uncertainty, =
librarians help to ensure that intellectual freedom will remain one of our =
most treasured freedoms.

A patron of one of our member libraries is looking for a book that was read
to him as a child (probably in the 1950's).  The book is a collection of
folk tales and he believes he can remember the publisher's name on the cover
(Grosset & Dunlap).  He believes that one of the stories in the book was
titled "Boy in the North Wind."  Any suggestions?

Thanks much -

I have a music stumper.

We have a patron who is trying to locate a children's music cassette that
includes "Miss Mary Mack" and a song about dinosaurs with the lyrics
"Look out folks and open up your doors
ready or not, here come those dinosaurs
they're coming from the east,
they're coming from the west..."

Any ideas?
Please email me at lcole@ald.lib.co.us.

I haven't had time to check out the following site thoroughly, but it may
help:

Other sites you may want to try for graphics are:
http://www.winnieshouse.com/
http://members.tripod.com/~poohb79/PoohGallery.html

Good luck with your Pooh program.  If your library has a little money to
spare, you might want to  invest in a Winnie the Pooh costume.  We bought
one last year and it has seen a lot of use.  Of course the Storytime kids
loved Pooh, but Pooh also visits elementary schools and day cares with us,
as well as appearing in parades.  The costume was relatively inexpensive
(less than $50) and well worth it.

 We are working on a Winnie-the-Pooh birthday party and have come across
references to Winnie bookmarks and either "Pin the Bee on Winnie" or "Pin
the Tail on Eeyore".  We have searched extensively on the net and have found
no Winnie bookmarks for sale.  We did find some to print, but we will need
quite a lot and would, frankly, rather buy them.
The same is true for the "Pin-the-whatever on who-ever"--can enlarge and
color something, but would rather buy it 'good to go'.   The Disney Stores
have nothing available along this line for purchase.  I would appreciate any
information anyone can send about these items; we will rapidly be running
out of time on this.
Many thanks

Subject: something missing in Lapsit program


for those working with babies ages 0-24months:

Our lapsit program began in October.  Once a month, 6x a year.

This is how we describe it:  "It will be a lovely, noisy time.  The
babies will listen to very short stories, play little games, and listen
to all of us sing nursery rhymes to them.  Afterwards, the adults can
visit and enjoy snacks while the little ones play together."

Gisela (the lady who does the program) can feel that something is
missing but can't figure out what.  She had done it 3x now and knows
that it needs something that will have the patrons thinking, "This is
great.  We will come back next month."

The babies do hand motions and sing songs, but Gisela thinks that maybe
the babies making music somehow is what she needs.  She has gone to
websites of other libraries to see what their programs are like, but
they all seem to be like what she already has.

Any ideas about what is missing?

Subject: Request for Behavior Policies for the Youth Services Area --
Date: Mon,  7 Jan 2002 17:42:13 CST


Hi!

A Happy New Year to you all.  And a request for help from those willing to
share their expertise.

Princeton Public Library has moved into new temporary quarters -- a
renovated
book store.  We are going to be here for two years -- at least.  But things
are really tight in the corner where youth services is housed, the facility
as a whole is a lot noisier than the building we left behind, and everything
is much smaller.  It has been years since we revised our list of rules and
regulations regarding behavior in the Children's Room/Youth Services Area.
We need something short and sweet and much easier to follow -- and we need
it
right now.  Our goal is to cut out excess words, limit the rules to a dozen
or less -- and make them as simple to read as possible.

Have any of you done this with your behavior policies?  If so, would you be
willing to share them with us?  It would help us so much to have a simpler
starting point than what we have now.  Please send copies of your behavior
policies to me at bkunzel@aol.com. I will be more than happy to share any
responses I receive with the list.

Thanks so much in advance for your help!
