This workshop will help you create your own virtual content for this year’s Summer Reading Theme as well as help you build a new skill or improve an existing one for future programs. Learn how to tell stories from the oral tradition - no copywrite issues. This workshop will cover how to find stories as well as how to create your own; respecting different cultures; developing your own style; using voice, movement and characterization; and how to memorize a story. We will also discuss how to do this in a virtual environment - making the camera your friend, setting up lights and sound, and using Zoom backgrounds. Handouts will list places where you can practice storytelling in a supportive community, virtually for now and in person in the future.

This webinar is presented by Paula Dugan, an MLS Librarian for 26 years and currently the Children's Supervisor at the Needham Free Public Library. She began storytelling in 1990 at the Bookcellar's Cafe in Cambridge, hosted by the Official Storyteller of Cambridge and world-renowned storyteller, Brother Blue. She has participated in monthly storytelling potlucks in both MA and RI and has been a featured teller several times over the years at the Story Space in Cambridge. She has told at street fairs, private events, book stores, day care centers and festivals including the showcase at 3Apples Storytelling Festival, The Johnnycake Storytelling Festival, The RI Storytelling Festival, Upper Williams Street Neighborhood Festival in New Bedford and more. She has offered several workshops for teachers, librarians and other tellers at the Sharing the Fire Storytelling Conference and attended conferences around the world including the International Storytelling Festival in Graz, Austria and the Storytelling Festival in Cape Clear, Ireland.

Join Miki Wolfe for a quick webinar as she discusses the pros and cons of running an online trivia program, using the platform of your choice and for any age group. Attendees will leave with a basic outline for how to run a trivia program of their own, along with tips and tricks for making the program a success. Attendees will also receive links to premade trivia presentations, as well ideas and resources for creating unique trivia contests.

As the Assistant Library Director at the Sharon Public Library, Miki Wolfe enjoys developing innovative programs for her library. Miki honed her trivia skills in a large, competitive family where love means not letting you win. In her spare time, Miki now organizes game nights that not only bring a spread-out clan together to vie for family honor, but also gently introduces tech-shy family members to the benefits of online hangouts in a COVID-19 world. And whenever answers are contested, she's never shy to direct her family to their local library for the right answer.

Transforming Teen Services - Getting Started with Connected Learning

Monday, 11 May 2020 13:53

Connected Learning happens when a peer or adult can connect a teen's interests and skills to real world opportunities. Schools and libraries can easily nurture these interests through programming and resources, and are well-positioned to connect teens to future career possibilities through community relationships. In fact, most libraries are already doing this--they just don't realize it! Join us as we discuss what connected learning is, how it supports educational equity, and explore how you can utilize connected learning with intention at your library or school.

This webinar is an introduction to the in-person Transforming Teen Services (T3) workshops that will be presented around the state when MLS and MBLC events resume. It is part of an IMLS-funded grant program administered by YALSA and COSLA.
