Upcoming Changes for Story Time Secrets

Summer Reading comes to an end in my library system tomorrow, and school starts on Monday. This seems like a good time to announce some upcoming changes in my personal and professional life that will have an impact on this blog.

As many of my readers may have figured out from my guest post at What to Expect back in July, I am expecting a baby at the end of November. In anticipation of the baby's arrival, and of my upcoming new job as a stay-at-home mom, I have resigned from my position at the library effective Friday, October 4. I have already started cutting back on some of my programs, and when the Fall schedule goes into effect next week, I will be down to just two - Drop-in Story Time on Friday mornings, and Preschool Story Time, which is moving back to Friday afternoons at 4:00. My last day of story time will be one week before I leave, Friday, September 27.

As my time at the library dwindles down, my posts will become somewhat less frequent, but I do plan to continue blogging about picture books, early literacy, and story time, even after the baby arrives. Details on the types of posts I will be sharing will be announced in October. Until then, expect the usual story time outlines, and occasional Flannel Friday contributions, right up until my last day of story time!


  1. Congratulations on your baby! You will have so much fun being a library patron with your little one! Over ten years ago I wrapped up a storytime session in April, and had a baby girl in May. She's 12 now, and I just went back to full-time work last year!

    1. Thanks, Lisa! I am definitely looking forward to being a story time attendee. I've already told several of my patrons that before too long, I'll be sitting beside them!

  2. Congratulations! I'll miss your story time insights. Good luck in your new adventure!
