In the spring, a library staff member’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of learning.
Apologies to Tennyson for that very un-poetic appropriation of his verse… but we are excited about these three lovely learning opportunities in April (which is National Poetry Month!).
With presenters Kimberli Buckley and Dunyau Maqsoudi-Moreno on Thursday, April 4, 2019 @noon Pacific Time
Celebrating diversity means being accepting of all people, regardless of their race, culture, or religion. Learning about different cultural aspects offers unique and new experiences for children. Hands-on craft activities provide an interactive and fun way to introduce children to the concept of diversity and multiculturalism.
In this webinar, we will define diversity and multiculturalism, cultural appropriateness, and highlight crafts and activities that will help teach children to respect and celebrate the differences in all people. By merging diversity and equity into our library programming we can build cultural relevance into any craft program.
