Bay County Public Library
Youth services staff members from across the Panhandle will get together on February 9, 2018, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. CT (10 a.m. to 2 p.m. ET) at the Bay County Public Library in Panama City, Florida to share programming ideas for the 2018 summer reading program.
All attendees are encouraged to bring goodies to share. PLAN will provide a light breakfast.
Some of the programs:
VPK Learning Circles with Dr. Suzanne Adinolfi, Florida Department of Education Office of Early Learning. Dr. Adinolfi will be discussing informational sessions that the Office of Learning is making available for early learning professionals and parents.
Summer Teen Programs with Sally Mason from the LeRoy Collins Leon County Public Library will feature 6 to 8 teen programs for summer; most of the programs will be music themed.
Reach Out and Rock! with Heather Ogilvie, Outreach Librarian at the Northwest Regional Library System. Time AND social research show seniors benefit in measurable ways from spending time with children. Recent studies show DANCE is the most powerful brain-building exercise for older humans! I plan six weeks of community engagement, featuring guest musicians, dancers, and artists of all ages. We will hand-craft instruments, play music, sing, dance, and, of course, read BOOKS about music. Inside and outside: Drum Circle in the Park, Dancing on the Green, Hip Hop on the Basketball Court, Marching Band in the Mall, Dancing in the Dining Hall. Children will be invited to join the seniors, and adults will be invited to join the children. Mix it up and make beautiful music. We will totally rock the summer.
We will also have other sessions with Zedra Hawkins and Mary Douglas!
Everyone should bring their ideas and we’ll have a brainstorming session!
Registration is closed for this event.
