Program Description

Event Details

Engage patrons while saving your budget by using free and low cost resources. This timely webinar provides inspiration for showstopping library programs for all audiences from seniors to children along with makerspace and passive programming resources. Tools and materials range from free resources to teach financial responsibility to toddlers to STEM lesson plans from NASA to resources to host an Earth Day event incorporating a ‘free trees for kids’ program. Discover resources to host an amateur radio program at the library to contact the crew of the International Space Station, host a free retro game night, or host a financial protection workshop for senior patrons. Jam-packed with where to get free lesson plans, printables, downloadables, online learning resources, collaborative library programs, program grants, and donation resources, this webinar will show participants where to find a large collection of resources for costless library programming including resources for program planning, marketing, and assessment.
