Wed Apr 22 12:39:50 EDT 2020

Thanks to all who joined today's meeting!  We had a great preview of DemographicsNow<https://bit.ly/MeLDemoNow> from Liz Breed, MeL Coordinator. Don't forget that Theresa Runyan, MeL's Engagement Specialist for Public Libraries, is available for staff trainings and there are training videos; all available at: https://mel.org/staff. Following DemoNow, we recapped last week's question on what is our "why" for summer reading, how that might change this summer, and how best to meet our communities' needs. Summer Food Service Program<https://www.michigan.gov/mde/0,4615,7-140-66254_34491---,00.html> information was shared and I encourage your library to see if you're eligible to become a sponsor site. Finally, we did some crowdsourcing of summer library planning: https://bit.ly/MiYouth4_22_20.  <-- Links to slides, the chatbox and more are included on this shared doc, so feel free to add to it, save it, & refer to it as you make your plans for summer 2020.

Singing with children is one of the easiest and most enjoyable ways to increase reading and writing readiness. It also serves as "Storytime Glue." You don't have to sing well to share music with kids - you just need give yourself permission!  Join, Storyteller and Narrative Consultant, Jenifer Strauss for a webinar filled with rhythms, rhymes, songs and silliness. Learn to use simple rhythm instruments and props to move and groove with kids. Discover how singing refines auditory discrimination and sequencing, improves listening skills, creates phonological awareness, print awareness, enriches vocabulary and uplifts our mood!
Webinar link will be emailed to registered attendees the day before the event. Registered attendees will get a link to the recording after the webinar.
This project is made possible by grant funds from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) administered by the State of Michigan through the Library of Michigan.

For some children, home is not a safe place.  Take a deeper look at what some children might be experiencing in this time of crisis, how it might affect learning, how to recognize the signs of abuse, and how public libraries might best serve these children. Dr. Amelia Siders will be our presenter, she is the Director of Clinical Practice Development and Education, at the Children's Advocacy Centers of Michigan.
Children's Advocacy Centers (CACs) partner with prosecutors, law enforcement, and protective services to coordinate the investigation of child maltreatment-often child sexual abuse. CACs also provide support to child survivors of abuse so that those kids can get back to being kids.

"Story" is a part of a child's first language and key to exploring and understanding their world. Imaginative play is essential to a healthy childhood and a more compassionate, fulfilling adulthood. And so, providing children opportunities for open-ended narrative play with puppets and props will not only allow them to develop social skills like sharing and cooperation, it will also help use their imagination to grow in language and literacy! In this webinar, facilitated by Storyteller and Narrative Consultant, Jenifer Strauss, learn how to provide children with simple puppets and props from every-day household items to provide "anytime, anywhere" opportunities for narrative play.

Parents and caregivers know the value of the storytime programs; librarians not only provide valuable language experiences, they model good practices! But how do we help parents understand that language experience is something they can provide for their children all-day, every day? Storyteller and Narrative Consultant, Jenifer Strauss will model a Ready-to-Use Parent Presentation that librarians can use to encourage parents to engage their children in quality language experiences during the course of a regular day with their kids.

These programs are supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
