Zines offer a unique way for libraries to expand their print collections and connect with their communities in a time when so much of our work is going digital. Handmade publications that can cover any subject, many zines represent perspectives rarely covered in other print media. Zines offer a range of programming opportunities for youth and adults alike. Participants in the workshop will learn from librarians who have brought zines into their collections, as well as those who have used zines for programming and outreach. Topics include what zines are, the history of zines, how libraries are incorporating them, and ways that they are being used to connect with community. You will leave with ideas and concrete steps for getting started with zines in your institution, no matter your budget or institutional culture.

Diversity Goggles: Examining the Literacy Development of Black & Latino Youth from Critical Multicultural Perspectives [$] Forum/Update/Assembly, Preconference/Institute Moscone Convention Center
3007 (W)
Description :

Although libraries can play an important role in helping to ensure that youth have the literacy skills they need to succeed in school and be ready for college or careers, research suggests that Black and Latino youth often feel disconnected from their school and public libraries. This half-day workshop will examine how teen services professionals can better support the literacy development of youth of color through library programs and services. Participants will use “diversity goggles,” provided by the presenters, as a tool to examine librarian perspectives and practices towards Black and Latino youth, with the goal of improving their understanding of how to better meet the needs of these youth . The workshop will feature a panel of YA authors whose work speaks to Black and Latino youth experiences. These authors will not only discuss their work, but will also engage in the broader conversation concerning ways to better support Black and Latino youth through libraries. Authors who will be participating include: Kekla Magoon, Isabel Quintero, and Adam Silvera. This workshop is sponsored by the Young Adult Library Services Association, with funding from the Dollar General Literacy Foundation. Facilitated by Dr. Kafi Kumasi and Dr. Sandra Hughes-Hassell.

How Makerspaces and DIY Science Can Promote STEM Learning at Every Age Author Event, Exhibitor session Moscone Convention Center
124 (N)
Description :

Long before atom-smashers and deep-space probes, there were no separate classes of people labeled scientists or inventors. Fundamental breakthroughs in science and technology were made by ordinary people who felt a passion to explore, build, and create with the tools at hand. Today, the economic importance of STEM is greater than ever, and devices like 3D printers and rich sources of scientific understanding online can empower individuals to new success—if they are properly motivated to engage with STEM subjects and if they have access to those resources. The role that libraries can play in making those connections has therefore never been more crucial.

John Rennie, editorial director of MHE’s AccessScience, will lead this panel of Makerspace innovators and leading librarians. They will discuss the best practices for libraries that want to encourage hands-on exploration and curiosity-driven learning of STEM subjects, with case studies from successful programs across a wide range of ages. They will also look at exciting new information resources that can help libraries and their users develop the knowledge and skills to participate effectively in a Maker-friendly world.
