#FlannelFriday: What Flannel Friday Means to Me

I don't have anything new to share this week, but I did want to answer the question "What Flannel Friday Means to Me" in honor of Flannel Friday's two year anniversary.

First, a little history on my involvement in Flannel Friday. My first Flannel Friday contribution appeared on May 6, 2011. To date, I've contributed 31 times. My most viewed Flannel Friday post at the moment is my Five Little Pandas.

When my first Flannel Friday post went live, I'd had my degree right at 2 years and I'd been in my current position for only 7 months. I was also getting ready for my first ever summer reading program.

As a solo youth services librarian (I am the only one for 4 branches) in rural western North Carolina, Flannel Friday provides me with a way to connect with other librarians, get new ideas, and share ideas I've had. The Flannel Friday Facebook page is my go-to site for new story time and program ideas. It's the place I ask questions and know I'll receive a response. In short, I love Flannel Friday!

Isn't it great? I feel like no matter how seemingly random, you can always count on great responses to questions from this group.

I am a solo librarian most of the week and I must say that Flannel Friday's got my back!

As someone who has spent her entire career in large library districts with lots of support, I am in total awe of those of you who carry everything for your communities by yourself. That FF makes your job even a little easier makes me so happy!

Amy, yes it is wonderful! I agree, Jane. Thank you, Melissa, for your kind words. These comments are proof of the community that FF has created. I'm so glad I can be a part of it.
