With school closures, remote learning, and working from home, COVID has changed day-to-day reality for many families. 

While school-age children are becoming overwhelmed with work and screens, parents are often at a loss to find creative ways to engage younger children who are temporarily unable to attend daycare or preschool. 

Libraries have stepped in to offer virtual storytimes for their patrons, but what can we offer that directly supports parents' and caregivers' engagement with children?

Libraries have an opportunity to reach out to their families and give them a behind-the-scenes look at how we create dynamic and enjoyable programs for children, giving parents tools to adapt library crafts and activities to use with their children.

Librarians can create streaming, recorded, and written content for parents, offer take-home activity kits, and more.

Participants will:

  • Understand the principles of adult learning¬†
  • Build their toolkit of parent- and caregiver-oriented programming
  • Learn ways to extend programs for parents beyond the current COVID reality
