I wanted to make you all aware that Storytime Underground has just announced its creation of local chapters, and Nebraska has one! And I'm leading it!
Right now it'll be focused on a Facebook Group, but I hope that eventually it'll lead to fun informal meet-ups and more. Have a YS job opening at your library? Share it here! Have a tricky child behavior question? Ask it here! Want to humblebrag or share fun ideas/pictures? Brag and share them here!
This is a brand new endeavor, and we can really mold this into a group that helps us grow and develop into even better servers to youth and their families.
And since we're sort of alone here in the middle of the country, then feel free to invite friends in adjacent states. They can check it out, and see if they'd like to submit themselves to the SU joint chiefs to start a chapter in their state. Cool? Cool.
Feel free to ask any questions in the comments, or reach out to me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org). I can hardly wait to see what happens with this group!
Also, I want to give a shout out to the Teen Services Underground Facebook group. Maybe they'll someday have local chapters as well.
