Together in Isolation: How to Run a Virtual Storytime

Product Description

To show our support to the library community at this time, the Education Institute has offered 4 free webinars for Ontario Library Association and Partnership members and at a subsidized cost to non-members.

These sessions are meant to build connection and information-sharing as libraries begin to consider what comes next as they navigate this rapidly changing landscape.  

As a non-profit and a charity, we are launching a pay-what-you-can fee structure for our upcoming webinars to help recuperate our operational cost. We will continue to program webinar content that will support you through this challenging time. Please visit the Library Marketplace’s website to register for our upcoming webinars.

This session aired on Thursday, May 7 from 10:30 a.m.-11:30 a.m. EST.  Purchase it to receive access to the recording for 1 year from that date.
