Library Staff Skills - Niche Academy<https://my.nicheacademy.com/staffskills> - do not forget there are many intriguing self-paced courses available to MI library staff, provided with support from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Today I'd like to feature: Storytime 101<https://my.nicheacademy.com/staffskills/course/22517> (newly added to MI's course options)!
Over the past few years, there has been a sizable turnover in youth services staffing. Seasoned storytellers are retiring, being promoted, or moving on to use their skills in new ways. Libraries are hiring a wonderful new group of staff to continue the tradition of offering high-quality storytimes in their communities. This tutorial is meant to support those who are new to storytime. It covers basic skills, like preparing for storytime, reading books out loud, using props and music, and engaging adults and children. Each section has an interactive module filled with useful information, examples, and videos. There are also links to documents and online resources that will support your storytime practice.
It should take you around five hours to complete the entire tutorial. Some sections are longer than others and some are shorter. Some of the information you may just want to skim over for now and go back to it when you need it. After you have completed the training, please fill out the evaluation at the end for ICL's records. Storytime is a magical event. Each program is a big deal in the life of a young child. During this tutorial, you will learn how to make your storytimes meaningful and impactful for your audience.
This course was developed by Idaho Commission for Libraries with support provided by Institute of Museum and Library Services, and open to Michigan Library Staff.

The Coretta Scott King Book Awards Donation Grant
The Coretta Scott King Book Awards Donation Grant was created to help build collections and bring books into the lives of children in preschool programs, faith-based reading projects, homeless shelters, charter schools, underfunded libraries, and other community organizations. The Coretta Scott King Book Awards Committee believes children's lives must be saturated with books and reading opportunities. An enduring message of the Committee's Public Awareness Campaign is that books and reading can only add value to children's lives if books are present with opportunities to read. The Book Donation Grant addresses these objectives.
The grant will open this Fall, with applications due by 4pm CST, January 31, 2022: https://www.ala.org/rt/emiert/cskbookawards/bookgrant.

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.

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%7C12cee965542a4434bd5208d995623d9e%7Cd5fb7087377742ad966a892ef47225d1%7C0%7C0%7C637705071875186950%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000&sdata=4EiCjGUSx3nFlWi9ZT%2FEhF2pX8owgcpc%2BvEBkNpsjqk%3D&reserved=0>.
