Flannel Friday is a group of youth services librarians who blog a flannel/felt board story every Friday in the Flannel Friday Roundup.
How to view: The Flannel Friday Roundup is compiled and posted as a blog post by a different Flannel Friday-er on a rotational basis every Friday. A list of compilers with their dates can be found on the Flannel Friday blog. Where you'll also find an archive of Flannel Fridays past and much more.
You can also visually explore the posts on the Flannel Friday Pinterest boards!
How to participate: Follow the instructions on the Flannel Friday Flannel Friday blog.
You don't have to participate every week, but can join in whenever you have time.
