Welcome to the new Website


Welcome to the new Mother Goose on the Loose Website. This new design will be much easier to navigate and update. One of the cool, new features is a map that shows where Mother Goose on the Loose programs (as well as programs that use elements of Mother Goose on the Loose) are taking place throughout the United States. If you’re holding a Mother Goose on the Loose program at your library or center, please click “submit your MGOL location”, complete the form, and we will post your program on our map.

Families with new babies, families that have moved to new locations, or families who are on vacation can use this map to find the closest library that offers their favorite program! In addition, library practitioners can see where similar programs are being presented across the US.

I’d love to hear comments from you about the new Website. In my opinion it is long overdue… what a pleasure it will be to not rely on basic html coding in order to update the Website.  Hurrah!
