Hola! Hello! Bilingual library services for children

¡Es divertido hablar dos idiomas! A place to share books, music, techniques, and all things related to bilingual storytime! http://www.bilingualchildrensprogramming.blogspot.com/.  Blogger: Katie, children’s librarian from Lexington, Kentucky; website accessed May 4, 2010.

I hate going to conferences alone.  It’s that moment when you get inside and have to decide where to sit that kills me, especially if seating is at tables, round tables, meant to encourage discussions.  Such was my plight at the Virginia Hamilton Conference on the evening of April 8, 2010.  Hmm, after a fun evening and some new resources, I may never dread going solo to events again!

I sat at a table with a young woman who was a discussion leader at one of Friday’s events.  Katie came to talk about bilingual storytimes and services.  After a few minutes asking about her job, she passed me her card with her blog address.  I finally took a few minutes to visit, and it is a rich resource.  Katie recommends appropriate bilingual books, music and even programming ideas in a well-written blog.  Her book reviews are worth perusing regularly as acquisitions are planned in any library not used to serving a Spanish-speaking population.

Kudos, Katie!  I’ll be a regular visitor to your blog.  And I won’t dread sitting alone at a conference again, thanks to you sharing your passion for your work with children.
