This workshop will get you inspired for a stellar summer reading program that celebrates A Universe of Stories! Participants will review highlights of the SRP manual, get hands-on space-themed craft ideas from NASA, and experience VINS planetarium in person. Best of all, each library goes back with a craft kit to recreate a Moon Rover activity with their young library patrons!

March 2019

Has your library been impacted by families having a rough time at the library? Do your staff sometimes feel torn between wanting to do the right thing for a child and not knowing what boundaries to set as a library professional? The library as a place for child visitation (supervised or not), among other issues, can cause challenges. Please join us in this informal round table discussion with a Department of Children and Families director as she fields our questions and concerns.
