This morning was the ALSC All Committee Meeting, at which time I sat in on the meeting of the School-Age Programs and Services Committee. I can talk about programming until the end of time, and I wanted to see firsthand what these committee members were brainstorming.
The members of the committee are focusing on professional trends and timely issues in determining their upcoming projects. The four major areas of discussion were: 1) the Caldecott 75th Anniversary; 2) STEM/Core Curriculum; 3) school/public library collaborations; and 4) inclusive/autism programming. The committee members shared a lot of examples of what their libraries are doing in these areas, and I look forward to seeing what resources they develop in the coming months.
In the meantime, chime in with details and descriptions of school-age programs that you do in these areas. What programs have your kids loved? Share in the comments, and let’s get a conversation going.
