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.

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!
