Where the Wild Things Are: Children's Discovery & Learning Spaces
Sunday, 06/24/2012 - 08:00am - 10:00am
Hilton Anaheim - Pacific BProgram
This program will review how public librarians have changed children’s library spaces. Increasingly they are no longer children’s book collections and children’s story hours, and instead have become destinations for children and their caregivers for discovery, play and learning. Three nationally known experts on these transformations will describe how to create discovery and learning spaces in libraries and how to outfit them. Time will be provided for questions and answers.
The Library: Moving Beyond Community Living Room
Sunday 10:30 AM-12:00 PM
Hilton Anaheim Palos Verdes
As the concept of library as “community living room” or “learning commons” has firmly taken hold, the definition of Library has expanded in the public’s mind. Library buildings are increasingly housing many amenities that on the surface appear unrelated to traditional libraries. Join us in a discussion about these spaces, why they are intrinsically related to library missions today, and how libraries are incorporating them into their facilities.
