We will explore the principles of Connected Learning and how to incorporate them into practice for youth ages 0-18 years.

Learning Outcomes:
Participants will…

  • Learn about Connected Learning, the six principles, what it looks like in your library, and how to take your library services to the next level
  • Understand educational equity and the public library’s role in providing opportunities for youth
  • Discover youth interests in your community
  • Leave with resources to help you incorporate Connected Learning into your library’s current programs and services
