Culinary Literacy: A Library Recipe for Cooking Up Literacy and Community
Tuesday, December 6, 2016  / 12:00 pm Pacific / 1 hour
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/culinary-literacy.html

Opening in 2014, the Free Library of Philadelphia's Culinary Literacy Center<https://libwww.freelibrary.org/culinary/> offered the country's first commercial-grade kitchen classroom in a library. It is revolutionizing the way Philadelphians think about food, nutrition, and literacy. The Center reaches to every corner of the community. It teaches math and science to kids through measuring and mixing, builds English language skills and nutrition education for non-native speakers, empowers adults with disabilities to cook with confidence, and much more. Hear how this innovative idea was transformed into reality through strategic community partnerships and institutional support. Learn how your library can start teaching community residents everything from butchering a goat to making a vegan stew, boosting literacy and nutritional health for all.

This webinar is part of a series highlighting the work of recent LJ Movers & Shakers<http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2016/03/people/movers-shakers-2016/movers-shakers-2016/> and is hosted in collaboration with Library Journal<http://lj.libraryjournal.com/>.

Presented by: Liz Fitzgerald, Culinary Literacy Center's Administrator, Free Library of Philadelphia (PA), and 2016 Library Journal Mover & Shaker<http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2016/03/people/movers-shakers-2016/elizabeth-fitzgerald-movers-shakers-2016-innovators/>

Service Excellence in Challenging Times
Wednesday, January 11, 2017  / 12:00 pm Pacific / 1 hour
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/service-excellence-in-challenging-times.html

In turbulent times, many Americans turn to their libraries. While this is a true affirmation of the value our country places on its libraries, it increases the responsibility for library staff to meet the public with the best customer service. During times of community turmoil, it is an extra challenge to convey patience, good humor, an accurate knowledge of your collections and services, and a willingness to serve. Learn how to ramp up your skills to maintain a safe, welcoming environment where everyone can visit, work, and play without feeling uncomfortable. Keep calm, confident and capable of guiding your community through difficult times.

Presented by: Pat Wagner, library trainer and consultant with 35+ years' experience, and known for her practical programs.
