Storytime is the most vital early learning program in your community. This series of three webinars (People, Place, Package) will introduce techniques to achieve bigger outcomes for more of your community through storytime. The ideas presented will move beyond the nuts and bolts of storytime delivery to look at big picture concepts that influence strategic decision-making about storytimes.

At the end of the second of this series of one-hour webinars, participants will:

  • Know 2 ways to evaluate physical layout of children’s areas
  • Know how to increase storytime capacities to meet expanding high demands
  • Learn at least 3 action steps to assess and enhance storytime and related services at your library


This series will be of interest to children’s librarians and supervisors interested in working together to make strategic decisions that improve our customers’ experience and enable the library to connect with more families.
