STEAM programs and services are a natural extension of the storytimes and school-age events that libraries have been offering for decades, with the added bonus of engaging children in new interests. In fact, many of the programs and resources you already offer at your library can be adapted to become STEAM activities!

This course will prepare youth services staff to:
*         Understand what STEAM means for children (preschool-grade 6) of all backgrounds in a library setting, as well as how STEAM fits within library goals.
*         Address the frequent concern of new STEAM practitioners that we're not "experts" in STEAM content areas
*         Look to existing library programs and resources as a fertile starting place for STEAM activities.

Facts Matter: Information Literacy for the Real World<https://learn.libraryjournal.com/courses/facts-matter/>, Library Journal Online Course
Live Interactive Sessions on Wednesdays, March 28 & April 11, from 11a - 1p PT, Bridged with Homework, Online Workshops, Discussions, and Resources, and Certificate of Completion Provided

Helping your community understand news bias and identify reliable sources is more critical than ever. Arm yourself with new approaches and tools.

Libraries serve people of all backgrounds and beliefs and function as trusted, nonpartisan sources of accurate information for their communities. In these polarized times, helping your community understand news bias and identify reliable sources is more critical-and perhaps more difficult-than ever. Arm yourself with new approaches and new tools designed for the 'new' real World.

Through this course, you will learn:
*         How to use behavioral science strategies, conspiracy theories and anti-bias training to inspire and facilitate critical thinking in patrons who are immersed in misinformation, while keeping conversations nonpartisan and non-alienating.
*         How to curate an up-to-date repertoire of media and news literacy tools, including reliable fact-checking sites, that will help empower you and your patrons to objectively evaluate print and digital information and data.
*         How to understand high-impact data literacy strategies that you can share with your students and patrons so they can make sense of the data in their world.
*         How to identify data that can help you support your facts and messaging and then turn it into compelling visuals using free online tools.
*         How to partner with local news organizations to promote news literacy through a range of programs, including developing a citizen journalism hub at your library.

Empowering Teens: Fostering the Next Generation of Advocates<https://learn.libraryjournal.com/courses/empowering-teens>, Library Journal Online Course
April 24 & May 8, 2018
Live Interactive Sessions on Tuesdays, April 24 & May 8, from 11a - 1p PT, Bridged with Homework, Online Workshops, Resources, and Discussions, Certificate of Completion Provided.

Also available On-Demand! Can't make a live session? All sessions will be available to you 'on demand' following the initial broadcast.

We frequently tell teenagers that they are the future. It's not true. Teens can be leaders in their communities and schools today. There are examples across the country of young people changing the world with their bravery and passion. Teens want to make a difference and be advocates for the things they care about. Librarians working with young people are in a unique position to help them have an impact now - on their communities and schools - as well as develop the skills, confidence and approaches that will enable them to advocate throughout their lives.

In addition to the live speaker sessions, you'll work in small groups with facilitators experienced in producing compelling teen programming to complete assignments, share resources, and engage in active discussion boards that will ignite your thinking and fuel your efforts at your library.

When you attend this interactive online course, you'll learn from experienced leaders how to:
*         Extend your outreach to young people and help them engage in advocacy
*         Collaborate with teens to develop social justice programs in the library and community
*         Partner with local and national organizations to build teen-centric programs
*         Identify resources that will help you establish teen programs built around civic engagement
*         Use best practices to create and sustain lifelong library users, advocates, and leaders
