We’re now in the time of year when somehow in the midst of Summer Reading chaos we’re supposed to have planned our Fall programming, which amounts to planning our whole year’s programming because of the programs that continue through the school year. How is that possible? How are you supposed to think coherently about how many storytimes and which kind of storytime and when are the school holidays and do you have time to add more reading patches and who can you book for your outside programs and oh yes….Children’s Book Week is in November.
It’s more than a little frustrating, isn’t it? The solution is clear, though. All we need is one more month of summer. We can have two months of Summer Reading–June and July, say. Then we’ll have another July where Summer Reading is over, and August to get everything ready, and voila! Prepared for Fall! So if anyone can let me know where to find a second July, I would really appreciate it.
