I’ve come across some great resources about summers and libraries lately. Here are a few:
Association for Library Service to Children’s new(ish) creation:
Learning Beyond: 21st Century Summer and Out-of-School-Time Programs for Youth Toolkit
This resource includes tips on what you need to know and consider when creating responsive, enriching, and equitable programs for kids and teens to expand their learning.
In preparation for the IFLS webinar Oceans of Possibilities in Our Backyard last week, our presenters Anne Moser and Jenny Van Sickle created an incredible booklet, full of booklists, program ideas, and more! Here’s a recording of that Oceans of Possibilities in Our Backyard webinar.
NEWI (Northeastern Wisconsin CE Partnership) hosted a webinar last month called Summer Library Program Learning and Fun: Catch the Wave, and recording and handouts are available from it.
Don’t forget that if you haven’t yet accessed the CSLP Manual, it is chock-full of great resources!
