One Book, One Community featuring Five Little Indians by Michelle Good

Author

Meg Gregory, Dara Hill

Description

In 2021, the Thompson-Nicola Regional Library (TNRL) launched a One Book, One Community (OBOC) project in collaboration with Thompson Rivers University and the Cariboo Regional District Library. The award winning title selected was "Five Little Indians" by Michelle Good. The project became a focus for our system, informing staff development as well as programming into the spring.

We're hoping to support other OBOC projects by sharing key resources, specifically staff training resources, book club kit content, and sample marketing materials.

These resources are offered as a part of an information session offered August 2022. Thank you to all who were able to attend. The presentation file is included and find the recorded session as "Web Link."

TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE IN THE MAKERSPACE: INCORPORATING INDIGENOUS-LED PROGRAMS FOR STEAM SUCCESS

Description

Are you ready to get crafty with Indigenous traditions for 21st century learning? Learn to bridge brilliant craft traditions with STEAM literacies through Indigenous-led maker programs. In 2019, Vancouver Island Regional Library (VIRL) launched their makerspace, the Creativity Commons to the public. Staff worked to build alliances with local stakeholders such as Indigenous artists, makers and community members interested in cultivating a reclamation of culture through the library makerspace. VIRL staff worked collaboratively to develop STEAM programs for all ages such as Traditional Drum-making, Leather Craft, Textile Art for Kids, Music-making and sound production. Through an Indigenous-led approach to program delivery, libraries can better amplify indigenous voices in a reconciliatory manner.

Stories from the Library - A collaboration

Description

In re-imagining services, the Legislative Library and Parliamentary Education Office collaborated on virtual learning programs during the pandemic. The Parliamentary Education Office had successfully pivoted some programing to on-line but there were some service gaps. For the Library, public virtual programming was a new experience. Both departments benefited from the collaboration. The Parliamentary Education Office connected with the public when the Assembly was closed to visitors, the Library gained new exposure, and both departments learned about each other.
