Library Storytelling and Creative Advertising

Have just enjoyed two Brisbane City Council library performance gigs in the last two days:

- Wynnum Library storytime for the Wynnum up late program

- and the opening of the new Carindale Branch Library.

The Carindale Library children's area is really cute. Works pretty well for storytime as well.

While I was at Wynnum I was making up a song:

'Pelicans and Seagulls, Pelicans and Seagulls are flying overhead, are flying overhead,
Pelicans and Seagulls like eating fish and chips.'

I like Pelicans but sometimes those Seagulls get just a bit pesky.

Someone sent me an email with a great advert on YouTube where a seagull gets his just deserts from some well organised crabs. Here's the link. (It's fine for children so long as you take some parental care around some of the other YouTube content that might pop up around it.)

I can see a story coming on with crabs in it for sure.
