Merry Christmas! Joyeux Noel!

Not as whimsical as our CCL tree, eh?

Given that many librarians, particularly children’s librarians, still hold fast to the traditionalist models of using felt as part of their storytelling programming, I felt this to be acceptable graphic to share during this festive season. A craft project, on display in one of the Toronto Public Library’s satellite branches, this felt Christmas tree does seem like an ambitious project, yet a joyful way to ring in the new year…in a Cindy Lou Who/ Grinch sort of way.

Admittedly, I am not a traditionalist librarian, who employs felt storyboards or puppets to engage and inspire our children to read…..though my inner Martha Stewart does feel challenged. Perhaps a smaller version would be a doable decorating project…..?

Merry Christmas! Happy New Year to my fellow Falcons! See you on January 4th, 2012.

While I am a librarian , I am a reading cheerleader. The purpose of this library blog is to better promote reading and information literacy to community. I love books, reading to my son,properly placed apostrophes,canoeing, locating the nearest Starbucks, cheering the Montreal Canadians, and Cherry Garcia ice cream.
