Youth Services Roundup
Registration is now open for the first ever CSLP Summer Programming Symposium on December 2! All library staff that are interested in summer programming should consider attending this free, online event that will cover programming ideas, outreach/partnerships, and promotion/marketing. You can find more information, including the day’s schedule, on the CSLP website.
From the ALSC blog: “We are still in a strange “not quite where we used to be, but not mid-pandemic either” place, so I thought it would be a good time to reflect on activities that we embraced during the pandemic to see whether they are worth keeping. What changes did we make that the public really embraced? What did we love as a staff? What is everyone just OVER?”
PRE-K HALLOWEEN CRAFTS
From No Time for Flash Cards: “Are you as excited about Halloween as I am? My daughter has been decorating our house slowly since the first day of school in August! I am thrilled to be back in the PreK classroom to see my 4 and 5-year-olds get excited, which lets me use their excitement for motivation to learn. Here are a bunch of PreK Halloween crafts and activities I will be trying to fit into my October lesson plans this year!”
