Betsy Diamant-Cohen, the creator of Mother Goose on the Loose workshops, books and CDs will join us for a day filled with ideas on delivering dynamic and skill-based storytimes. There will be ample opportunity to join in the fun and practice new techniques. If you want more information on Betsy click HERE.

The full day session will start at 8:30 a.m. with registration and snacks. A working lunch will be provided from 12:00-1:00 and the workshop will end at 4:00 p.m. with drawings for door prizes.

The morning session (9:00 - 12:00) will be focused on storytimes for English-speaking families, and the afternoon session (1:00 - 4:00) will focus on storytimes for Spanish-speaking families. The workshop is also a great chance to network with librarians in your area and share ideas with one another. 

WORKSHOP OBJECTIVES:

  • Libraries strengthen their storytimes by implementing best practices in early literacy.
  • Library staff have the opportunity to practice storytime activities in order to increase their comfort level and expertise.
  • Library staff will increase knowledge of how ICfL can support their early literacy programs and services.
  • Library staff will increase their knowledge and comfort level in conducting storytimes for Spanish speaking audiences.
