The Wyoming State Library is pleased to announce that it was selected to partner with NASA@MyLibrary to host a workshop for Wyoming public librarians. This workshop will be held in Laramie on March 28-29, 2019 in conjunction with the WLA Youth Services Interest Group Spring Meeting.
The NASA@MyLibrary staff will provide the training free of charge to public librarians in attendance. The workshop training aims to help participants in facilitating hands-on space science activities for children ages 5-13 and families in their libraries and connect to a broader online community of space science resources (STAR Library Network). Participants can look forward to activities demonstrated by two facilitators from the Space Science Institute in Boulder, Colorado. The facilitators will provide supplies for everyone to participate in hands-on activities, as well as lunch and snacks on Thursday and Friday. Part of the training includes an evening under the stars that includes outdoor activities.
All of these activities are designed to be replicated in your own library programming.
This workshop training will pair nicely with the Collaborative Summer Library Program theme of A Universe of Stories.
