As the new year rolls around, Dana and I have been thinking a lot about the direction we want to take Jbrary. Since the beginning, one of our goals with this blog and our YouTube channel is to highlight the youth services work taking place in Canadian libraries.
Over the past few months I’ve been mining Twitter for Canadian library staff who serve children, trying to make connections with as many people as possible. And it’s been a good start. But we’d like to do more here on the blog.
Are you working in a Canadian library and serving children and families in some capacity?
We would love to highlight the work you are doing! Our goal is to feature a monthly guest post written by children’s librarians, library technicians, or any other staff who answer yes to this question. We have no rules or guidelines for the guest posts – just tell us what’s going on in your part of Canada! You could describe a recent program, share some favourite storytime books, or even talk about your community. The options are endless.
Interested? Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Please share this call for Canadian library content with anyone you think might be interested in contributing. As we slowly build our network, we rely a lot on word of mouth and the reach of social media. Thanks so much!
