So after a week off, I decided to observe the Storytime for the Very Young to make sure I understand the the format of everything. The typical format has been:
1) Opening Song
3) Rhyme with Puppet or Flannel Board
5) Rhyme with Puppet or Flannel Board
7) Ending Song
My supervisor told all three stories above. She is such a vibrant and storyteller. I really enjoy her clear and expressive voice.
Today I met a new volunteer. Now I have met five teen summer volunteers. I gave her a craft to do. I found a fun craft on Pinterest using googly eyes and straw painting to create these:
I thought they were cute but I heard from one of my teen volunteers that they were too messy and from next time she would like to have a craft that wasn’t so messy. I was really excited to hear feedback from one of the teens. I will definitely consider her thoughts when I choose the next craft.
One-on-one Tech Trainings
Two of my three one-hour sessions were filled this week. For my first session, I had a lady come with her NOOK Simple Touch.
The NOOK Simple Touch doesn’t have an audio jack so only e-books can be read with this device. My client didn’t have her device charged at all so the battery was completely dead. While it was charging, I explained OverDrive and the Wisconsin Digital Library to the patron and then explained that she would need to use her computer to transfer checked out e-books to her device. I hope she will come back for a second session.
My second client brought his iPad. He wasn’t interested in e-books or audiobooks but more interested in using his iPad. We scheduled a second session with his wife. In a few weeks I will do a session with two iPad users. I am looking forward to help with their devices.
