Core Webinar: Best of Core at ALA Annual Conference; Programming for Accessibility

CHICAGO–Core hosts the webinar “Best of Core at ALA Annual Conference: Programming for Accessibility” on August 8, 2023, at 1 p.m. CT. Explore accessibility through the creation of a new, hybrid early literacy program for expectant parents and parents of newborns, Mother Goose on the Loose: Hatchlings, designed in conjunction with Maryland State Library. Learn common accessibility issues, and how they impact a variety of people who use the library's services from the librarian who created the program, the graphic artist who designed all of the printed and online materials, and the section 508 specialist who advised and curated the website on which the downloadable materials were located for ALA compliance. Children’s librarians, staff who create designs, webmasters and staff who work with artists are particularly encouraged to attend.
