AzLA PD Monthly Webinar Series 

Interactive Library Projects During the Pandemic: A High School Experience, Monica Lourenco

Re-Inventing the School Library, Erica Urban

Date: November 4, 2021

Time: 1 pm

Program Description:

Interactive Library Projects During the Pandemic: A High School Experience - As the world started to function differently because of the COVID-19 pandemic, schools started altering plans to educate children in the virtual mode, something almost inexistent in many schools. In her second year as a teacher-librarian in an urban high school in Phoenix, Arizona, Monica Lourenco believes that there is a need to eliminate the old idea that libraries are dormant places. Libraries are places with many resources and materials. It is essential to bring the community to the libraries, getting the students to the libraries, asking what they want to see and read, their favorite book formats, and the kind of services that would be interesting for them instead of perpetuating the same programs and materials. How can we do that if we cannot be physically present during the pandemic? Monica designed four initiatives to keep the school library experience alive for the students and teachers as they followed social and physical distancing rules. The projects included curbside pickup services, Silent Book Club, Library Live, and Outdoor Library. Join Monica as she shares a definition of each program and pictures of the result. 

 

Re-Inventing the School Library - There have been many changes, and the school librarian’s role will continue to change in the upcoming years. How do we, as school librarians, rebound and reinvent our libraries into something vital to the school community as a whole? Join Erica Urban as she shares how to be a resilient and inventive school librarian. 

 

Share your expertise and experience. The AzLA Professional Development Committee Monthly Webinar Series is back, and we want you. Submit your webinar proposal here. Submissions will be considered on a monthly basis.
