"STEP into Storytime: Adapting Books,
Rhymes, and Activities for Mixed Ages"

approach that articulates the link between
child development theory and storytimes.

rhymes, and activities for mixed ages based
on their stages of development.
Sunday, June 24; 10:30 - 11:00 a.m.
"Transform and Thrive: Ideas to Invigorate
Your Library and Your Community"
Successful libraries prioritize an organi-
zational approach that encourages library
staff to work with each other as well as the
community to create opportunities to thrive.
That may sound airy and abstract, but it boils
down to applying a handful of straightforward principles, which include intelligent
risk-taking, learning the right things, respect
and goodwill, fulfilling the vision of library
director, and activating creative thinking.
Join Dorothy Stoltz, James Kelly, and Lynn
Wheeler, co-authors of the new book Transform and Thrive, as they lead a brainstorming
session for how to apply these principles to
11:00 - 11:30 a.m.
"LGBTQAI+ Books for Children and Teens
The rich and varied body of literature for
lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer/
questioning, asexual/allied and intersexed
young people is discussed in this free program led by Christina Dorr and Lizabeth
Deskins. The authors will share their favorite
titles, talk about their new book from ALA
Editions and why they decided to write it,
and then take your questions.
Offered elsewhere in the Convention
Center are two special Trending Topics
programs: "Homelessness and Libraries - An
Empathy-Driven Approach," with Ryan J.
Dowd, and "Get Moving in Your Library
- Physical Literacy, Yoga, and More!"
with Jenn Carson and Katie Scherrer. The
Conference Scheduler will be updated with
location information when available.
Also not to be missed and included in
your conference registration: Join writer/director Emilio Estevez for an advanced screening of his new film "the public," also starring
Alec Baldwin, Taylor Schilling, and Jeffrey
Wright. It centers on the regular patrons of
downtown Cincinnati's public library, many
of whom are homeless and marginalized,
and their interactions with the library staff
who have built emotional connections with
them. When a bitter Arctic blast hits the city,
the patrons turn the library into a homeless
shelter by staging a sit-in, which escalates
into a police standoff. The film will screen
twice Saturday, June 23 - at 9:00 a.m. and
2:30 p.m. - and on Sunday, June 24 at 1:00
p.m. at the New Orleans Theater inside the
Convention Center; all showings will be followed by a Q & A with Estevez moderated
by Ryan J. Dowd, executive director of Hesed
