A period of time specifically scheduled for reading and telling stories to the youngest members of a library's clientele. Storytelling is usually done by a children's librarian, but in some cases by an assistant or volunteer. The children's room in many public libraries includes a special corner or space set aside for storytelling.
Within school libraries there is a new trend regarding best practices of integrating library resources and skill across the school community. Gone are the days of a once-a-week, set time to offer services to students. Taking its place are project based needs and connected learning. Classes are ecouraged to use the library throughout the day for reading, research, and collaboration.
