Live Webinars

What is a webinar?

One of ALSC's goals to provide children’s librarians with timely, educational and affordable professional development opportunities.  Because life in a library moves fast, ALSC's webinars are the perfect solution for someone who wants and needs educational information but doesn't have a lot of time or resources.  These short (one hour) interactive sessions taking place in Adobe Connect give librarians and library support staff the opportunity to learn right at their desks.  The only necessary tools are a computer and the internet.  Live webinars are free and open to all. All webinars will be recorded and available in the archived webinars section of our website immediately following the live presentation.

Archived webinars are now free for members!

Archived webinars are now available free and on-demand for ALSC members! For non-ALSC members, individuals pay only $25, and groups $195.  These webinars will not be offered again live, but you receive unlimited access to the recording with your ALSC membership or archived webinar purchase.

Live webinars are free and open to all.

 
Firing on All Cylinders: Making Reading Matter
Tuesday, June 5, 2018, 12pm Eastern, 11am Central
Alison Brumwell, Librarian, Freelance Education and Literacy Consultant
"I hate reading." "Reading is boring". Being seen in the library is social suicide". are some direct quotes from young reluctant readers. How librarians, both school and public, can effectively engage with hard-to-shift children of all ages and develop strategies for firing them up is what this webinar is all about. When the demands of the curriculum, staff shortages, budget management, access and the day-to-day management of a busy library leave increasingly less time for reader development it's even more important to create stimulating, positive reading opportunities and make the most of your lending collections.
