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 February:
Uncover Hidden Figures Within Biography in Context
(Gale/Wyoming State Library)
Biography In Context allows you to explore some of the greatest African American Hidden Figures throughout history. This webinar shows libraries how to use tools from Gale to showcase and promote these Hidden Figures in the library, on the library website, and on social media pages.
Trustee Trouble 4
(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.
Wild Wisconsin Winter Web Conference
In case you missed it, they’ve made the slides and recordings available from their January conference. The Wild Wisconsin Winter Web Conference is a state-wide virtual conference developed by the Nicolet Federated Library System and supported by 15 other library systems in Wisconsin.
Thinking Sideways: Computational Thinking and Early Literacy (Public Library Association): This on-demand webinar explorers components of computational thinking, what it looks like in early childhood, and how library staff use developmentally appropriate activities to support whole-child development. Young children can become successful problem-solvers, creative thinkers, and lifelong learners at the library.
