Our wonderful committees are just getting started on CSLP's 2023 manual, and I am emailing to request more volunteers for the Spanish Committees.
We need people for both the Spanish Idea Committee, which will be working on program ideas from now until the end of this year, and the Spanish Review Committee, which will review and provide feedback on drafted materials in early 2022.
We are really hoping to expand our Spanish-language/bilingual offerings to more age groups in 2023, but we need more volunteers to make that happen!
Please email this year's Spanish Manual Chair, Deborah Kinirons at DKinirons at uniondalelibrary.org<mailto:DKinirons at uniondalelibrary.org>, if you are passionate about bilingual programming who might be interested in either committee.
ALSC and the Program and Services Recognition Committee are excited to announce that the Baker & Taylor Summer Reading Grant is open and accepting applications through November 17, 2021! This grant is designed to encourage reading programs for children in public libraries by providing $3,000 in financial assistance, while recognizing ALSC members for outstanding program development.

Ready to Read Michigan Presents:
Storytimes for Everyone! A 3 Session Series with Pamela Martin-Diaz<https://libraryofmichigan.app.neoncrm.com/np/clients/libraryofmichigan/event.jsp?event=2034&>
Tuesdays, Nov 9-23rd, 1-3pm ET
Early literacy is the base upon which a child who reads with understanding is built. The goal of this 3-part workshop is to teach storytime staff how to explain, model and encourage caregivers to help their children develop the early literacy skills needed to learn how to read. Participants will become familiar with seminal research on early literacy, how to explain its importance to caregivers while presenting fun, interactive storytimes. This will also cover the 5 practices of Every Child Ready to Read, the basis of Ready to Read Michigan.
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.

January 20th and 27th, 2022
1:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET
Please plan to join us live for this 2-part series, offered by the Bay Area Discovery Museum, created to introduce librarians to the research, practical implications, and resources offered in their Reimagining School Readiness toolkit.
Research shows that beliefs about intelligence and ability impact one's performance and response to failure. Learn more about what research says, how to examine and change your own mindset, and what you can do to help support children's growth mindset and persistence through challenge.
Do you wonder what research really says about how to support school readiness? Based on a comprehensive review of cognitive and developmental psychology, the key findings in Reimagining School Readiness aim to surface the skills and conditions that matter most for a child's success in school and life, and to guide educators and others (including families) in designing learning experiences and environments to support this development.
Attendees will gain insights into the current research behind the skills and conditions that matter most for a child's success in school and life. The workshop will include an overview of BADM's Reimagining School Readiness Toolkit that library staff can use to supplement or create quality school readiness programming.
Instructor: Michelle Wessman Randall, PhD, Head of Evaluation at the Bay Area Discovery Museum (BADM) and BADM staff.
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.

>From Diversity to Inclusion: How to Audit Your Collection and Why
Wednesday, December 15, 2021
11:00 AM - Noon ET
No need to register if you are unable to attend this session live, a recording will be shared via email and posted on our website.
Join Kymberlee Powe, Children and YA Consultant for the Connecticut State Library Division of Library Development, as she dives into the makeup of the publishing industry. You will learn how to identify the difference between a diverse collection and an inclusive one and walk through the logistics of performing a diversity audit of your collection. The examples and resources provided in this session will focus on youth collections; however, the methodology of performing a diversity audit, and the reasons to do so, are universal to all collections.
This presentation is brought to you by the Connecticut State Library, in collaboration with the Indiana State Library, the Library of Michigan, and the State Library of Ohio, so come and be prepared to exchange ideas with library staff from across our three states.
Michigan library staff may register here: https://libraryofmichigan.app.neoncrm.com/np/clients/libraryofmichigan/event.jsp?event=2163&<https://gcc02.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Flibraryofmichigan.app.neoncrm.com%2Fnp%2Fclients%2Flibraryofmichigan%2Fevent.jsp%3Fevent%3D2163%26&data=04%7C01%7Clancasterc5%40michigan.gov%7C50beb87f267e46e15ff708d98a71e3e4%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C0%7C637693045388821139%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=9EKpdECoYt6w%2FX%2BT1ZmE9TgzYZJfw4%2F8TWoLzfMLKcs%3D&reserved=0>.

Music and Movement Activities That Support Young Children's Social and Emotional Learning<https://home.edweb.net/webinar/music20211026/>
10/26/21, 3pm ET - edWeb.net<https://home.edweb.net/webinars/>
Healthy social-emotional development in early childhood can have a profound impact on a child's overall development and learning. In fact, many early childhood experts see positive social and emotional skills as paramount for school readiness and later school and life success. With the interruption of the school year and less socialization opportunities, there is valid concern among researchers, educators, and parents that the COVID-19 pandemic has had-and will continue to have-a negative impact on young children's social and emotional development.
