Robert Munsch Discovery Portal Launches at Guelph Public Library

On Tuesday, July 16, the Guelph Public Library launched its new Robert Munsch Discovery Portal on its website. There's something there for everyone: games, activities, and videos for children; curriculum materials, lesson plans, and activity ideas for teachers, librarians, homeschoolers, and daycare centers; and videos and interviews for Munsch fans of all ages. You can even contact a "Munschologist" at the library to ask questions about Robert Munsch and his works!

The portal will also run various Munsch-related contests--the current contest asks entrants to create a 30-60 second video about why they love their favorite Munsch story. You have until Sept. 1, 2013, to enter: click here for full details.

In other Munsch-related news, a new organization called StoryMobs will be hosting a Paper Bag Princess story mob in Toronto on August 17! Want to know what a story mob is and how to get involved?* Visit the StoryMobs website.

*Hint: think "flash mob meets storytime," with lots of fun costumes thrown in.
