Ongoing :: Celebrating Inclusion and Diversity in Storytimes

November 18, 2020 @ 12:00 pm

The Celebrating Inclusion and Diversity in Storytimes module is only available to California Library staff via CALL Academy.

As Youth Services Staff we have an obligation to give children and their caregivers an accurate picture of the world. The storybooks we choose are windows and mirrors to that whole world, not just their community. Through this session, you will learn some tips on how to choose books and programs that fulfill this vital role.

Presenter/Author: Melanie Borski-Howard, Melanie has studied music, theater and received her Masters in English from Utah State University. She is the co-author of the book, Storytime and Beyond: Having Fun with Early Literacy (2018, Libraries Unlimited.) She is currently a Youth Services Librarian at Boulder Public Library in Boulder Colorado.

Date of Delivery or creation: 03/2020

CALL Academy Modules are available 24/7 for your learning convenience
