Information literacy is a well-established goal of academic libraries, yet so much of the day-to-day work of running and coordinating information literacy programs is absent from professional literature, job descriptions, and library school coursework. While the definition of a program is a coordinated set of activities in service of a specific purpose, what those activities actually consist of - and who is responsible for them - is highly dependent on institutional and interpersonal contexts.

We have all heard how making and makerspaces can encourage STEM learning, but what can they do for literacy? This webinar will address ways that literacy and making can go hand in hand to enhance your programs offered at the library. By focusing on transliteracy skills, and including maker activities with traditional literacy activities, librarians can better influence the traditional literacy skills they have traditionally targeted.

Even small libraries can create a huge impact on their communities. Serving as Director of the Craig Public Library, one of ten recipients of the 2015 National Medal for Museum and Library Service, Amy Marshall and her staff were responsible for implementing programs and services that exemplified library outreach and created lasting connections between the library and its patrons. In this webinar, Amy shares strategies with participants that they can then immediately take back to their own libraries and communities and put into action!

A complete count in the 2020 Census is essential to make sure that libraries and their communities don’t miss out on billions of dollars in needed funding, as well as political representation. However, nearly 40% of households have not responded yet, and the count is even lower among populations that have been undercounted historically. Learn how the Census Bureau, libraries, and community partners have adapted their operations and outreach in response to COVID-19, and how libraries can support a complete count before the Census ends in October.
