In partnership with the State Library of Ohio, SERLS and the Central Ohio Youth Services network (COYS) present the Summer Library Program workshop at the State Library on Friday, January 28.
Dive into a fun, educational day of brainstorming, idea-sharing, hands-on activities, and great resources for the 2022 Collaborative Summer Library Program theme of Oceans of Possibilities.
COSI will join us to introduce their Water Science Kit. This session will include an overview of the activities in the kit, a walkthrough of the resources related to the Water Kit and Ocean topics, and tips and tricks to use the Water Kit in your library.
COYS will lead sessions on decorations, preschool programming, school age programming, and crafts. During the preschool and school age sessions, there will be a breakout for teen services specialists to explore summer programming for teens and to discuss the near future of teen services.
In the afternoon, we’ll have a talk table breakout for some lively small-group discussion, and an Idea Share to round out the day.
