Meet The Library Staff (Part VI)

In our ongoing "Meet The Library Staff" series, we are introducing Terrin:

Hi, my name is Terrin, and I work as a circulation assistant at Baldwin Boettcher Library. I enjoy working at the library because I love to read. My favorite genres are Young Adult fiction and graphic novels. My favorite series of all time is (of course!) Harry Potter.
At the library, my jobs are to check in and check out books for customers, and also check in all the books that customers order from other branches. They get scanned in, placed in envelopes, and put on the Holds shelves.

Turn UP The Volume in Story Time

Why do we use so much music in story time?  It is a sort of language all in its own, but tied directly to learning.  In story time, it is used to create a friendly and inviting environment, to denote time; such as designating an opening and closing song.  In our case we use Skiddamrink to sing hello and The Clean Up Song to pick up after story time is over.
