And even as the number of children who qualify for free or reduced-price meals increases, according to a Food Research and Action Center report "for every 100 low-income children who ate school lunches during the 2014-2015 school year, just 15.8 children, or roughly one in six, participated in the Summer Nutrition Programs in July 2015."

Visualizing (and Finding!) Funding for Libraries

Tuesday, February 28, 2017 / 12:00 pm Pacific / 1 hour

Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/visualizing-and-finding-funding-for-libraries.html

This webinar will introduce participants to a dynamic and freely available data-visualization tool, Visualizing Funding for Libraries that enables library professionals and supporters to search for institutional funding for libraries at national, state, and local levels. Participants will learn pro tips on navigating the tool and as well as next steps on how to pursue new funding opportunities. Data visualizations such as maps, network constellations, and partnership pathways showcase key networks of funders and recipients, as well as individual grants that highlight the library services and programs that are winning grants. Visualizing Funding for Libraries<https://www.knightfoundation.org/grants/7715> is a Knight Foundation News Challenge winning project.

Presented by: Kate Tkacik, Manager of the Funding Information Network, and Amanda Dillon, Manager of Knowledge Services, both from the Foundation Center<http://foundationcenter.org/>.

Privacy Literacy at Your Library

Tuesday, March 7, 2017 / 12:00 pm Pacific / 1 hour

Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/privacy-literacy-at-your-library.html

Our offline lives are no longer separate from our online identities. Many people are unaware of how their information is being used, what they have control over, or how to have safe online interactions. San José Public Library's Virtual Privacy Lab<https://www.sjpl.org/privacy> has developed a seven-module customized learning experience for library patrons, in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. The modules guide users through topics such as social media and security, and provide personalized tips, links and resources that enable them to feel safe and confident online. This privacy literacy resource is available for everyone, so learn how you can utilize the online Virtual Privacy Lab with the populations you serve at your library.

This webinar is part of a series highlighting the work of recent LJ Movers & Shakers<http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2016/03/people/movers-shakers-2016/movers-shakers-2016/> and is hosted in collaboration with Library Journal<http://lj.libraryjournal.com/>.

Presented by: Erin Berman, Innovations Manager, San José Public Library (CA), and 2016 Library Journal Mover & Shaker<http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2016/03/people/movers-shakers-2016/erin-berman-movers-shakers-2016-tech-leaders/>.
