Before Bilingual Storytime: The Outreach Bridge to Engaging Latino and Spanish-speaking Families
Thursday, July 7, 2016 / 12 pm Pacific / 1 hour

Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/before-bilingual-storytime.html

If you want to attract Latino and Spanish-speaking families to your library, the instinct is to launch a bilingual or Spanish-language storytime. It's the "if we build it, they will come" logic for attracting community members who are not being served by the library. Libraries may be disappointed to discover that it doesn't necessarily work that way. In this webinar, recognize the critical role that outreach plays in bridging the gap between Latino and Spanish-speaking families and library services. Hear real-world examples of outreach strategies from librarians who successfully connected with their Latino and Spanish-speaking communities, and learn a basic outreach process that you can adapt for your own community.

Presented by:

Katie Scherrer, Connected Communities<http://www.connectedcommunitiesconsulting.com/>, consultant and co-author of Once Upon a Cuento: Bilingual Storytime in English and Spanish<http://www.alastore.ala.org/detail.aspx?ID=11683>; and Lauren Simon, Community Librarian, Tualatin Public Library<http://www.tualatinoregon.gov/library>

Coding for Everyone: How Your Library Can Help Anyone Learn to Code

Tuesday, July 19, 2016 / 12 pm Pacific / 1 hour

Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/coding-for-everyone.html

Computer programming, or coding, is a digital literacy skill that has become as important as reading and writing. Learning to code builds rational thinking and problem-solving skills, providing powerful tools that transfer to other subjects and create lifelong learners. Libraries have stepped up to help everyone learn the basics of coding - preschoolers, elementary school kids, tweens, teens, young adults, mid-career professionals, and retirees. In this webinar, learn why coding is important for everyone. Hear examples of informal and facilitated learning approaches, resources and best practices for library coding programs for a variety of audiences. And the best news is that you don't need any specialized training in computer programming yourself to run a successful program!

Presented by:

Kelly Smith, Founder, Prenda<http://library.prenda.co/>
