The Reading Experience for Children and Teens

The Reading Experience for Children and Teens is a workshop which looks at the reading experience through the eyes of children and teens and how we, as librarians, can make a difference to every child's reading experience.

It follows on from last year's The Reading Experience workshops which focussed on the adult areas of the library.

This workshop will give you:

  • An appreciation for working with children and teens in the library - yes, it can be FUN and extremely rewarding!

  • Some knowledge and skills to feel more confident when helping parents / children / teens with their reading queries or promoting books.

  • a greater awareness of the role of the Children's Librarian and the services we offer.
They will run from 20 April - 27 May. Staff will be rostered onto sessions and dates advised by your Managers. A reminder email will be sent a few days before the session.
One of the followup exercises for this workshop is to visit this blog and leave a comment about one thing you learnt from the session. So ... if that's what you are here for ... please leave your comments in the comment box below.
