Free, Online Tutorials on Storytime Basics

Are you a new librarian taking over storytime for the first time? Or maybe your children’s librarian is out and you are filling in? Or maybe you just need a refresher on some storytime basics? Then check out this wonderful series by the Early Literacy Facilitators, part of a project called iLEAD, Innovative Librarians Explore, Apply and Discover (ILEAD): The 21st Century Technology and Leadership Skills Institute, from the Utah State Library to use participatory technology to develop skills in library staff.

They give tips on everything from what to wear during storytime to best book placement to vocal inflection to singing! There are 19 short videos and I have included their promotional video below. And I love that they are big Mo Willems fans! 🙂

Thank you for sharing your work, Early Literacy Facilitators!
