Date/Time: Thursday, October 17, 2019, 1:30-2:30 PM

Description:

Imagine if one of the first public places families go with their new babies is to the public library…and then they never stop! 

In this webinar, participants will learn how the library can welcome, celebrate, and support families with new babies, helping them to develop an early and lifelong love of libraries. Participants will also gain knowledge in positioning their library as an early literacy leader in the community, through effective partnership building and outreach. Multiple resources will be shared, including free templates for Baby’s First Library Card that libraries may customize and use.

Scams, Fraud and Identity Theft: How Libraries Can Help
Oct 17 @ 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

In this webinar, learn about free resources and programming ideas to support patron information needs related to fraud protection.

Consumers are faced with increasingly complex scams and schemes used to defraud millions of people each year. As libraries strive to increase the digital and information literacy skills of their patrons, and provide timely and effective strategies for fraud protection, keeping up with options for consumer protection can be overwhelming. This webinar will explore the free resources available in multiple languages and formats provided by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) that can be used by your patrons to protect their identity and to recognize and avoid scams. You’ll also hear how Johnson County Libraryis partnering with local agencies to provide programs and resources to empower consumers in their community.

Presented by: Carol Kando-Pineda, Counsel, Division of Consumer and Business Education, Federal Trade Commission; and Marty Johannes, Careers/Personal Finance Librarian, Johnson County Library (KS)

Public Libraries Partner to Respond to the Opioid Crisis
Oct 30 @ 3:00 PM – 4:00 PM

This webinar will present examples from new case studies of libraries who are serving as active partners in addressing the opioid crisis in their communities.

As communities across the country experience the impact of the opioid epidemic, public library staff are finding themselves on the front line of this public health crisis. How should libraries engage? Public Libraries Respond to the Opioid Epidemic with Their Community is an IMLS-funded project led by OCLC and PLA to expand libraries’ capacity to support their communities. The project studied a diverse set of communities where the library is an active partner in addressing the epidemic and facilitated discussions with library leaders and a range of government, public health, and community organizations. Presenters will share insights gained from the case studies and emerging practices, opportunities, and challenges, and share resources to help library staff guide their libraries’ response to the opioid crisis. This is the first in a series of webinars on this topic, highlighting the project findings.

Presented by: Lynn Silipigni Connaway, OCLC; Michelle Jeske, Denver Public Library; Marion Rorke, Denver Dept of Public Health and Environment; and Kendra Morgan, WebJunction
