Youth Services Librarians Check-In meeting - Shared screen with speaker view
Who can see your viewing activity?
We're unlimited for ours at DFT - 1,200 books max!
And there are no extra prizes attached
Our building is still closed - which causes a barrier with SRP.
CBR offers paper as well. I won't know how many for sure until they turn in at the end.
We have them in our lobby and change it each week. We haven't advertised it all and it's been a huge hit!
DFT has been putting out a variety of craft grab bags. They sit in our lobby just inside the front door.
We've been doing a crafting kit once a month. Glass Stone Magnets, DiY scratch art, make your own bubble kits, and stomp rockets.
They've been pretty popular.
we put out Take and Makes weekly when we have curbside. They have been very popular.
I’ve been creating activity bags every week. We’ve had limited access to children’s area and about 20-30 bags go out each week.
Heather that is awesome!
Thanks for the bag ideas!
We've also been putting out weekly grab and go bags, they've been a BIG hit! I set out 2 laundry baskets by our service window, one labeled Pre-K, which coincides with our ST weekly theme and then a School-aged bag, which is usually a STEM project. We've done about 150 bags a week. This week ours flew out and I made more to bring in yesterday!
Sooo sorry I was late. Was on phone with tech support for our email newsletter
I would love some craft uses for paper bags (aside from puppets).
Christi is going to make a castle out of paper bags on Monday for open art at Verona
But we all realize that virtual school through public school is NOT homeschooling, correct?
That is not appropriate
Responding to Karen
Promoting businesses through the library is not appropriate
I think working with the schools on this type of thing is key. Lynn is right - virtual school through public school is different. A LOT of the home school businesses are religious organizations - which is something you want to be aware of.
Did Andrea bring enough to share with everyone else.
Oh Murray, wish I had!
There are curriculum makers too, but yeah I don't know if we could really provide such a list.
I agree Heather -- working with school districts is key
This type of thing... https://wiva.k12.com/
Badgerlink is awesome!
I get questions about finding books for kids reading levels.
I have been creating book bundles off of children's reading levels. The parents tell me what their F&P level is and I go through the lexile and materials that we have to create appropriate book groupings for them. Novelist is great - but take it with a grain of salt for reading levels.
I do a chapter a day book club where I post videos each day. This month is "One Crazy Summer" which is wonderful.
MCF just bought Zoom with the Webinar module.
Our city attorney told us the permissions were not a thing
That a closed program was just like a library program in-person
I tell parents that it is their responsibility to turn off the video to their cameras before we go live to FB.
And we edit their names to delete the last names.
That's good to know. I'll feel much more comfortable doing book clubs via zoom in the fall.
CCBC shorts, will be on Wednesdays again?
beanstack this fall/winter challenges
