Virtual Storytimes: Filming Before, During, and After COVID- 19 (live webinar)

The world was turned upside down in early 2020.  Many libraries were closed suddenly and
children's librarians were asked to do storytimes online, some with materials
and some without.

Authors and musicians were giving permission for use, but the
rules of copyright have, and continue to be dubious. 

This brings up many
important issues as to what our role is as library storytellers before, during
and after this pandemic.  

This webinar
hopes to answer questions regarding virtual storytimes and empower library
workers to rise to the challenge of providing professional online early
literacy to our patrons.

Our presenters will
answer common questions about copyright, best practices, technology,
accessibility and more. Our presenters are also happy to take follow-up
questions and chat more!

Attendees will learn how to:


Get a basic idea of how copyright works


Find resources for copyrighted material before,
after and during COVID 19


Implement best practices in every storytime
including accessibility


Filming tips and strategies for a virtual


Do storytimes with limited materials
