“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.

WebJunction Webinars

“Opioid Crisis Town Hall: Library Needs and Responses”

Date & Time: 12 September 2017. 2:00 PM – 3:30 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]

Presenters:

* Vanessa Christman, Assistant Director at the Santa Barbara Public Library, most recently County Librarian/Director of Library Services, Humboldt County (CA)

* Kim Fender, Director, Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County (OH)

* Rachel Fewell, Central Library Administrator, Denver Public Library (CO)

* Hadi Sedigh, Associate Legislative Director for Justice & Public Safety, National Association of Counties, and liaison to the National City-County Task Force on the Opioid Epidemic

* Dana Murguía, Senior Program Manager, Public Health, Healthy Communities, Humboldt County Department of Health and Human Services (CA)


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.


“The Name of the Game: Playing Tabletop Games to Build 21st Century Skills”

Date & Time: 26 September 2017. 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time, North America [UTC -4]

Presenters:  Lauren Hays, Instructional and Research Librarian and Co-Director of the Center for Games and Learning at MidAmerica Nazarene University; and Kate McNair, Teen Services Coordinating Librarian, Johnson County Public Library, and YASLA Board of Directors.

Description: As hubs of lifelong learning, public libraries are always seeking new strategies to cultivate 21st century skills in their community members. The deeper we move into this century, the more critical it becomes for people to hone skills like communication, collaboration, critical thinking, global awareness and creativity. 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. Hear how public librarians are using games and get new ideas for programming and game-related projects that you can do at your library. Your younger patrons will be ahead of the 21st century game in no time.
