New Year's Resolutions

As the year draws to a close, it is a good time to set some goals for 2014.  Here are my plans for the upcoming year:

In the Library
  • Redo our Activity Room to focus more on early literacy and learning.
  • Create monthly early literacy calendars.
  • Put together circulating early literacy kits. 
  • Add STEAM programming to our program plans
  • Become a better manager (Ongoing process, I know, but it has only been 4 months and there is still much to learn.) 
  • Survive my first library millage with my sanity intact.

Yes, I do have more great blog posts planned, including:
  • How to use a stretchy band in story time
  • Scarf activities
  • Why booklists matter
  • What every children's librarian should know

Presentations and Conferences
This winter, I am starting off the year with a bang. I am pretty clear after March, but then we get into the time of summer reading.  If you see me at any of these, stop by to say "hi".

What are your plans for 2014?


  1. Whoa you've got some great goals!
    I have three:
    Survive and thrive at my job transition in less than 2 weeks.
    Graduate in August
    Learn ukulele for story time.
    From there my goals take off - I just need to get through the next 8 months!
    Good Luck and Happy New Year!

    1. Those are fun goals too! Plus, you will find that your list expands the longer you are working in the profession. :)

    2. My goals would be to come and see you at the 2 Michigan events!
