Youth Services Roundup 5/21/19



Due to the overwhelming popularity of our rocket photo booth props in LibCal, NCLS has added two more for you to borrow this summer! Place your reservation on Rocket 5 and Rocket 6 today!


Help kick off the Talking is Teaching Campaign by joining NCLS at our Talk Read Sing at the Zoo event on Saturday, July 20. We'll be promoting early literacy to kids under five and their families from 10am-2pm at the NYS Zoo at Thompson Park in Watertown. There'll be storywalks, crafts, storytimes, photo opportunities, and swag! Fun for the whole family! If you're interested in being part of this event, please let me know, and I'll add you to our staff roster for the day.


From DLD: The New York State Library is pleased to offer the following FREE two-part webinar series next month: An Introduction to STEM in Preschool Library Programming: What It Is, Why Do It, and How to Get Started, presented by Alissa A.

We will explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts in preschool, why to include this content in library story times and programs, and how to get started.
