Webinar: Child-Lead Play in Public Library Programming

FREE upcoming webinar from the iSchool at UW-Madison!

June 6 at 12:00 p.m. (CST)
Presenter: Carissa Christner, Youth Services Librarian, Madison Public Library – Alicia Ashman Neighborhood Library

Have you ever wondered if there’s a better way to spend your summer programming hours than hiring magicians and jugglers? Do you struggle with ways to incorporate truly authentic play (the kind YOU engaged in as a kid, not the kind directed by adults) into your library offerings? Not sure how much guidance to provide in open-exploration sessions for toddlers? Are you looking for more ways to encourage literacy skills and parent education? This webinar will introduce you to a radical new library program idea being pioneered in Madison, Wisconsin, based on a groundbreaking new educational philosophy called Anji Play. Learn how Carissa has adapted this approach, originally developed for schools, into a library-friendly format that both kids and parents love.
