“New Books for Storytime”

Date & Time: October 18th, 2017 12:00 PM

Presenter: Penny Peck

Description: Are you looking for new picture books to offer at your storytimes? Storytimes are one of the most popular and consistent library programs held for families, yet we often feature the “tried and true” books we have used for years. This webinar will focus on new picture books that will engage the storytime audience, including books that invite audience participation, books the promote the five parent practices (talking, singing, writing, playing, and reading), books based on songs and nursery rhymes, books that promote preliteracy skills and kindergarten readiness, and websites useful to storytime planning.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will have learned about many new books that can be included in storytimes, including:

* Attention-holding books for babies and young toddlers

* Cumulative, circular, sing-along, and audience participation books that enliven storytimes

* Books that promote the Five Parent Practices to add parent learning to your storytimes

* Informational books that engage young listeners

* Books that promote preliteracy skills and kindergarten readiness

* Books that reflect the diversity of the families we serve

This webinar will be of interest to any library staff member who provides storytime programs to children, including new children’s librarians or other library staff who are relatively new to serving children. This webinar is particularly valuable for support staff whose work includes children's services responsibilities at public libraries and elementary schools.

Description: Over two million people in the US are estimated to be dependent on prescription opioids or heroin. A sharp rise in drug overdoses has made it the leading cause of death among Americans under 50. This epidemic is happening in all regions of the country, in communities of all sizes, without discrimination for age, ethnicity, or income. As library staff see this crisis impacting their own communities, their urgent question arises: How do we respond?

Join us for a virtual town hall, where representatives from libraries and other community organizations will describe their local efforts and who they’re collaborating with. We also want to hear from you: We’ll ask audience participants to describe the informational, structural, financial and emotional support that library staff and community members need to withstand and address this alarming epidemic. The insights gleaned from this town hall will be shared to inform plans for future efforts.

This event is jointly organized by WebJunction and Public Library Association.

Your patrons can strengthen these skill sets while also having fun in a social setting — through playing tabletop games at the library. Learn about the wide array of games available and the specific skill sets each one promotes.

Presenters:

* Suzanne Flint: Library Programs Consultant, California State Library.

Description: Please note: This webinar relates to a California State Library grant project. It will be of interest primarily to California public libraries.

As part of the California State Library’s 2017/18 ELF grant, five library jurisdictions will be selected from a mix of rural, suburban, and urban locales to receive a supply of Starlings – a wearable tech device – as well as staff training and support to pilot various approaches to sharing and/or loaning the devices to families. This webinar will provide an overview about this pilot Starling project and explain the process for how your library jurisdiction can apply to be one of the five pilot libraries.

Words Matter: Libraries understand the power of words to help develop young minds, and they’ve been encouraging parents to talk, read and sing to their children for some time. Now the Starling can help reinforce these efforts! In this age of busy lives and smartphones, most children aren’t getting the exposure to words they need to reach their full potential. With the Starling, parents can SEE the power of their words. Libraries all over the country have discovered the Starling as a powerful new parent support tool that can show parents they truly are their child’s first teacher.

What is the Starling: The Starling is a wearable word counter that picks up vocal sound waves (without recording), and parses out the number of words a child is hearing. Those numbers are instantly updated on a parent’s smartphone app, and on their library’s Starling Dashboard. It can: Demonstrate to parents the power of words, and inspire them to sustain and expand their early learning and literacy efforts, and Scaffold your parenting community’s focus on talking, reading and singing.

Come join us to explore the possibilities for sharing and loaning these devices with your families!
