  1. Hi, Katie! It was really sad to unsubscribe today - but I'm "retiring" from being a Storytime librarian and closing out all the feeds that connect to my library email. I wanted to make sure you knew how much I have enjoyed your blog and how many great books and ideas I have used from posts you created. It has been so refreshing to hear from a Storytime provider who is very honest about what things/books/activities worked well and what seemed to be promising but just didn't fly. Thank you so much for taking the time to create and continue this blog. It is great! - Sybil

    1. Thanks so much, Sybil. I am so glad you have enjoyed my blog and found useful ideas in my posts. Best of luck to you in whatever comes next!
