Early Bird Discounts for Picture Book Read In and OKI

Coming up in the next few months, SWON is hosting its twenty-third annual Picture Book Read-In and will also participate in OKI (Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana Children's Literature Conference) in November. For each of these events, there are early bird special offers!

Our Picture Book Read-In is a program for Collection Development staff, Children's Librarians, Teachers, Childcare Workers, and anyone else who selects and/or reads books for children. We provide thousands of recent titles (usually from the last two years) that have been loaned to us for this event from six local public library systems. Each attendee receives a printed guide listing all of the books. The day includes time for selecting and binge-reading picture books, discussing possible story time options with your peers, and two presentations. This year, we feature Lisa Soper, Youth Services & Programming Coordinator at The Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County, with a presentation on Drag Queen Story Hours. If you register by July 27th, you will receive $5 off your ticket!

In November, OKI's Yearly Children's Literature Conference will focus on the theme "#ReadLocal - Discovering Treasures in Your Own Backyard" and will feature the authors & illustrators Adam Watkins of Ohio, Heather Henson of Kentucky, and April Pulley Sayre of Indiana. Please see swon.li/oki2018 for more information. Register before October 13th and get $10 off!

PCI Webinar - Spanish Storytime: Where to Start & How to Do It (even if you barely speak Spanish!)

There are more than 37 million Spanish speakers in the United States, and it is by far the most spoken non-English language for people over the age of 5.  Spanish is also the most spoken language of non-Hispanics in households in the United States.

The desire for parents to give their children exposure to a second language and the rapid growth of Hispanic populations in the United States is all the more reason to start an engaging bilingual storytime at your library.  

In this interactive webinar program, Alicia Lemar will give you a variety of tools that you will be able to use to:

• Select appropriate titles for Bilingual Storytimes
• Teach rhymes and songs that will help children and adults recall the language
• Utilize props to further enhance language development

Learn the ins and outs of presenting a bilingual storytime from an experienced children’s librarian and bilingual storytime presenter. We’ll cover tips and tricks to make your bilingual storytime a success - even if you are not a native speaker or have limited knowledge of Spanish!
