Free or low-cost library programs are a natural and effective way to meet the needs of school-age children and their parents or caregivers in your community. Your library's programming efforts could include multicultural events, do-it-yourself craft and game programs, book-related movies, Lego clubs, board and electronic gaming programs, book discussion groups, Makerspace programs, storytelling, puppet shows, and "dog buddy" reading programs.  In this course, expert children's librarian Penny Peck shares her practical experiences with determining, developing, and delivering programs that stimulate and engage children - all for a reasonable cost to your library.

Age Range: 12 - 18 years old
