The most important thing to know about my Flannel Friday posts is that my colleagues past and present are mostly responsible for this work. I really cannot stress that enough. I work with some very talented women. And, the 100s of flannels we have in our collection are great. The second most important thing? We know how lucky we are to have such a collection!
Occasionally we are given an assignment to come up with a new flannel board as one of our goals. Also, at staff meetings, we have been assigned to share new story time materials. This is another great way to develop such a wonderful library of materials. Creating a friendly competition among staff members to see what creative things we can come up with isn’t bad… That is, as long as it stays friendly and everyone knows the end justifies the means: entertaining our patrons with great literature.
