Virtual Storytime - Tips on Fair Use & Kids' Privacy

As we explore and plan our online programming content, ALSC (the Association for Library Service to Children) has shared two blog posts to help us navigate two big issues. Much of this content sprung from work being done on the ALSC Virtual Storytime Services Guide. The entire guide, featuring sections on Best Practices; Technology Tools; Servicing Diverse Families; Online Programming Ideas; Promotion; and other Online Resources, will be available for free later this month on the ALSC website.
