In addition to the live webinars in our training calendar, each month we try to pick some videos out there that you can watch “At Your Leisure.” We hope you enjoy these ones that caught our attention for January:
Virtual Field Trips in Wyoming (Wyoming State Library)
Join Nathan Doerr from the Wyoming State Museum and Gretchen Henrich and Megan Smith from the Buffalo Bill Center of the West for an exploration of their virtual field trips that can be scheduled for your classes!
Trustee Trouble 3 (Wyoming State Library)
Library Board membership is a great way to give back to the community and the library. Sometimes that first year on the board is tough, there is a lot more to being a library board member than you might think. In this series of episodes, laugh and learn along with Dan, a new library trustee, as he muddles through his first year on the library board. We suggest viewing one episode per month and then as a group, discuss the episode and answer the questions asked at the end of the segment.
Library 101: Fake News (North Dakota State Library)
Library 101 tackles the topic of Fake News. Learn about what it is, why it’s so relevant, and how to prevent its spread. (See more Library 101 videos from the North Dakota State Library.)
