“Early Bird” Summer Reading Planning Virtual Training (Live Webinar)

Nov 29, 2023, 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM

It’s never too early to start planning for Summer Library Programming! In this workshop, State Youth Services Consultant Janeé Jackson-Doering will guide participants through the best practices, activities, ideas and resources for youth ages 0-18. Come share ideas  - and learn new ones - with other youth librarians across the state in breakout rooms, and get inspired to Read, Renew, and Repeat in 2024! 

The first part of the session will be a presentation from Janeé, the second part will be spent in breakout rooms. Participants may leave early (and earn less CE Credit) if they do not wish to participate in breakout room discussions. Feel free to bring items you used last summer to share with others.

A version of this webinar will be repeated early in 2024. For our full calendar of Summer Library Program training, please visit:
