Between Storytime and the Prom: Tween Programming Fills the Gap

Would you like to establish or enhance tween programming at your library?  In this webinar, we’ll discuss key elements of successful tween events and how to promote your programs and manage registration, group size, and materials.  We’ll look at tried and true tween events in detail, including planning checklists, handouts, and specific activity outlines.
