Live Webinars

What is a webinar?

One of ALSC's goals is 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 Zoom 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 following the live presentation.

Archived webinars are free for ALSC members!

Archived webinars are 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.

25 Ways to Build the Bridge between your School and Library
Wednesday, September 9, 2020, 12pm Eastern/11am Central
Jessica Bauer, Youth Services Department Supervisor, Hillsborough Library; Amy Behr-Shields, Somerset County Library System (SCLSNJ)

To support and empower the communities that we serve, librarians need to step out beyond library walls. With successful school outreach programs, librarians can create lasting networks and educate the community on modern library practices. Librarians are the bridge between schools and the library. Teachers and parents can’t do everything. It takes a village to raise a child. And part of that village is your local librarian. Participants will receive 25 ideas for programs and services that will help to build the bridge and close the educational gap between schools, home, and the library.
