Hi everyone, 

Ever wonder how all the ideas get into the summer reading manual you received to help you plan One World Many Stories? Librarians from all over considered the theme and contributed great ideas. Here's your chance to dig in and contribute as well!

It's time to start digging up ideas for 2013's Dig Into Reading slogan. I've attached the chapter headings and ideas from Patti Sinclair, manual editor. We want to concentrate on tweens but not forget the primary grades. We are seeking crafts, games, and full program ideas along with reproducible activity sheets - puzzles, games, mazes, and so on. This is the first time we've done an "underground" theme - it should be fun. 

There was quite a spirited discussion at the annual meeting concerning snacks so they might be left out unless considered absolutely necessary to the program. 

Please send your ideas to trishsinclair at sbcglobal.net < mailto:trishsinclair at sbcglobal.net > or to me and I'll forward them on. The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2011. 

Thanks - your creativity is appreciated!
