Quick Play Gaming for Teen Outreach – 1 LEU

Teen patrons in every community live lives that are more and more hectic with little spare time and sometimes shrinking awareness of libraries and what they have to offer. It is sometimes the case that to engage them the best thing to do is to go where they are. In the community of Hagerstown, IN, a significant part of that has been accomplished by going into the high school and with the development of a program called the Quick Play Game Club. The program began over three years ago, originally as an International Gaming Day event that was highly successful, working in partnership with the school.

This webinar will cover how the game club began, the process of working with the school staff and finding a place in that very set daily schedule and how it has evolved into a twice monthly outreach program, the games used and the tips and rules that have made it fun for everyone.

Engagement with Soft Skills: Using Board Games at the Library – 1 LEU

For years now employers have identified ‘soft skills’ as one of the largest deficiencies of newly hired employees. Theses ‘soft skills’ generally encompass communication, critical thinking, leadership, problem solving, and teamwork. All of these can be nurtured and strengthened by playing board games. Libraries of all types strive to engage with their communities. By playing board games both of these two issues can be addressed. Join George Bergstrom, the Southwest Regional Coordinator in the Professional Development Office of the Indiana State Library, to discuss how libraries can help their communities foster these skills.

Indiana Kids Count! The 2020 Census @ Your Library – 1 LEU

Every Hoosier child counts logoWhy is the 2020 Census important for kids?

Children under 5 were the most under-counted part of the U.S. population in the 2010 Census, and between 2000 and 2010, the under-count was worse rather than better. If we don’t have a complete and accurate count of the young children in our communities, federal and state programs that benefit these kids don’t receive the right amount of funding they need to operate.

23% of people recorded in Indiana in the last census were ages 18 and under. That’s a major part of our population that requires an accurate count. You can help!

This webinar will explain the basics of the census and why it’s important. We’ll share resources for reading, programs, and activities you can implement now for your library, leading up to mid-March, when every household will receive an invitation to fill out the 2020 Census!
