Workshop Description:


















School libraries present special opportunities for developing successful programs. This course discusses programming in the school environment, and provides support for programs that meet the needs and goals of the school library.

Thematic programming can be the basis for an energized, dynamic school library. Effective programming is more than an occasional "add on" activity, it is the key to accomplishing the disparate roles and goals of a school librarian.

Well designed programming can strengthen curriculum and provide a means of communication with students, parents, teachers and administrators. Themes can be large or small, simple or complex. They can be tailored to your preferences and strengths as a librarian, or determined by the age level of your school or the needs of your curriculum.

Planning an effective program is a matter of matching themes and activities to needs and goals. Whether highlighting the collection to encourage circulation, collaborating with classroom teachers, or jump starting information literacy skills, programming can provide a connection to the larger school community.


After completing this course, you will be able to:
  • Relate programming to national standards
  • Plan programs to support district goals
  • Evaluate age-appropriate goals
  • Assess the impact of your programs
  • Discover the potential of programming in marketing and advocacy


The course addresses these issues and more in a web-based course designed to take about 1 1/2 hours to complete. It contains multimedia elements, external links, pre- and post-tests, and course evaluation modules.
Workshop Certification: No special certifications are associated with this workshop.
