In this workshop, librarian and literacy activism expert Janet Damon shows you how you can use storytime programs to help facilitate an anti-racist environment in your community.
Aspects of culture and history are disappearing every day — whether it is a language on the verge of extinction, a craft form that is now forgotten, or the history of a town that no one remembers. Learn how Pilot Mountain (N.C.) Elementary School, winner of ALA's 2017 Sara Jaffarian School Library Program Award, taught third-graders about cultural and historic preservation with a yearlong multimedia school library program.
In this on-demand webinar, Library of Congress staff introduce you to the LOC’s online exhibitions that challenge common narratives. They help librarians bring a variety of materials to kids and teens, sparking curiosity, supporting inquiry, and engaging them in real world learning. Learn about activities, displays, and programs that draw in young audiences; and to apply strategies that help their communities think more deeply about the way primary sources, including those from local archives and collections, complicate familiar narratives.
