Blow Out the Candles

Exactly four years ago, I was involved in a wonderful experience late in my career. My library system, along with two others in the state worked together to create Project Play. The multi-week, online course was set up over two semesters to help library staffers learn about the potential and reality of 2.0 technology and apps. Week 2 immediately challenged us to set up a blog. I did and Tiny Tips for Library Fun was born!

I didn't have a fancy-dancy name for it. So Tiny Tips it started as and Tiny Tips it remained. I didn't know quite what I was doing . There were already so many blogs reviewing kids and teen books so I didn't really want to go there. And then it struck me! I just wanted to talk about children's librarianship and how we run our libraries good..

Now 199 posts and 32,000 page views later, I am happily blabbity-blabbing along, thinking about why we do what we do and sharing with and hearing from my peeps near and far (hello my Australian and New Zealand friends).  I am so grateful for the work my Wisconsin colleagues did to create this learning opportunity for us and so grateful to learn so much to help me navigate technology with ease. Thanks all of you for coming along for the ride!


  1. Yay!!! Congrats on the anniversary and I love reading your blog, so keep up the good work! :D

  2. Congratulations on your blogging anniversary and continued success! You're the only Project Play participant from Winnefox who's continued to blog -- it looks like having won the laptop as a Grand Prize was one step in a series of fortunate events. :-)

  3. So glad Project Play was a good experience for you, Marge! I miss teaching via that project so much - it means a great deal to hear your kinds words. Keep on blogging and sharing with the world!
