Hello to everyone who has stumbled upon this blog!

My name is Erin, and I am a children’s librarian at the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne, IN. I absolutely love being a children’s librarian, and I have been one for 4 years!  I am passionate about early literacy, STEM/STEAM programming, and partnering with schools and local organizations to better serve our patrons.  Along with children’s programming, I am also responsible for providing friendly assistance and reader’s advisory at the youth desk, and purchasing books for the youth book collection (ages 0-12).

I started this blog to share ideas and to join the growing online conversation about children’s services.  While many of my posts focus on storytime, I also write about children’s literature, various other programs, and anything else that pertains to children’s services.

  1. Erin,

    I LOVE your blog! I am an AmeriCorps member working in the children’s department at a library in upstate New York. Part of what I do here is plan and deliver story times, both in the library and in outreach. So glad google brought me to you :]


  2. Love that you are trying to incorporate the iPad into your storytimes and look forward to reading updates. I am thinking about trying some iPad/techy storytimes, too; I am in the information gathering stage at this point. Thanks for sharing

  3. I came across your blog today and love your ideas. I’m a former first grade teacher and now stay at home mom living in India. Our daughter is just eight months old. I love the willingness if librarians to share their ideas–I just downloaded lots of bouncing and action rhymes today. I am looking forward to using your ideas at home and also for a playgroup we are part of. Thanks so much!

  4. Hello Erin-

    Your blog is awesome. I found your flannel board Ninja’s rhyme today. I was wondering if you had a pattern for the actual flannel character or could direct me to one?
