Johnsone County Libraries have posted a bunch of videos to aid early literacy on YouTube. These are a lovely way to show what the library can do and can give people tips and ideas for things to do, including finger plays, songs, rhymes, and wordless books.
We've been talking about doing something like this at Rochdale for a while: we do some very good early-years work in our libraries and have been looking at ways of sharing some of the practicalities with wider audiences. We already do some of that with programmes like "What's My Story" but they're quite time-consuming. If we could record some of the activities it's a one-off performance that can be used repeatedly at the convenience of the viewer.
We need to stop talking and start doing something concrete about this.
