Announcing: Library Services for Children Journal Club!

13 Oct

Do you, like me, LOVE to learn about the latest research around brain development or child development? Are you anxious to find out how to best engage your commmunity? Is STEM in the library a hot topic in your area? Do you want to hear about best practices for diversifying your kids’ collection? Then the Library Services for Children Journal Club is for you!

lscStarted by Lindsay Krabbenhoft (one half of the magical Jbrary duo) and her colleague Christie, LSCJC is an opportunity for like-minded library practitioners get together, in person or virtually, to discuss readings around one of the topics above. Every-other month Lindsay will post links to a couple of articles and a date on which we will discuss.

Some of us will try and meet in person (do you want to host? Go for it!) and there will also be an online discussion using the hashtag #lscjournalclub.

The first month’s topic is executive function, which I’m particularly interested in as I just did a webinar on the topic and how it relates to storytime! I’m looking forward to reading the articles and digging deep with my friends! The Colorado get-together is being planned (not by me – let me know if you’re interested, though) and I’m sure I’ll be talking about this online, too!

Join the discussion! Grow your knowledge! Share your expertise! Amaze your friends! Etc.! Etc.!
