They’re nicely done – go watch them! Here’s the link to their Youtube Playlist for all the videos. The video embedded in this post is an animated sing-along song video … and now that song is going to be stuck in my head the rest of the day. Can anyone say “earworm?”
And something to think about – we’re making digital branches. How are your YA/Kids/teens/etc services represented on your library’s digital branch? Currently, my library’s kiddo population is represented, but it’s sorta spotty (and we have an emerging plan to fix that – our Teen and Tween pages are the start of that). How about you? Some things to think about:
- Are your webpages focused on kids? Or is it really just for parents?
- Are your in-house activities mirrored online, like Wake County’s storytime videos? Or craft time? etc?
- Games, fun stuff, goofy interesting facts? Or … homework help? Probably need both.
- Older kids (think 13 and up) – social media? That the kids actually use?
- Staff who know how to do all the above activities, or a way to train them?
How about you? What cook stuff for kids and teens does your library do on their digital branch? I’d love for you to share!
