Hi gang,

Sorry about cross-posting.

I just saw this cool looking storytime webinar on Twitter:

February 6th, 2014
Start Time: Pacific - 12 Noon, Mountain - 1 PM, Central - 2 PM, Eastern - 3 PM
Presenters: by Patrick Remer and Heidi Dolamore

Storytime is the most vital early learning program in your community. This series of three webinars (People, Place, Package) will introduce techniques to achieve bigger outcomes for more of your community through storytime. The ideas presented will move beyond the nuts and bolts of storytime delivery to look at big picture concepts that influence strategic decision-making about storytimes.
At the end of the first in this series of one-hour webinars, participants will:

Learn at least 3 conversation prompts to facilitate planning discussions between children's librarians and their supervisors

  *   Learn at least 2 strategies to help supervisors without a background in children's services
  *   Identify techniques to support mentoring and professional development

This series will be of interest to children's librarians and supervisors interested in working together to make strategic decisions that improve our customers' experience and enable the library to connect with more families.

Part 2: Place explores the physical environments where storytimes take place and will be presented on Tuesday, February 11, 2014. See https://infopeople.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=372 for more information.

Part 3: Package will discuss how to package your storytime offerings to create an experience that is easy for parents and caregivers to navigate and will be presented on Thursday, February 20, 2014. See https://infopeople.org/civicrm/event/info?reset=1&id=373 for more information.
