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."

This includes how I organize my google drive with screenshots for examples. I also have a template of my weekly program planner. This template is based off of lesson plan templates I have made in my college course last year as a student in the education program. Feel free to use the template to make your own that goes with the program you are planning for. I am planning for the Summer Reading Club program.

Summer Reading Club Book Bingo

Description

For our kids' summer reading challenge at Red Deer Public Library, we format it as a Book Bingo sheet! Challenges are a mix of reading challenges and challenges that get participants up and moving. This year, we also tried to choose more activities which fit with our theme of "Grow a Reader". Kids get a free book prize after completing 4 rows in any direction, with two chances for prizes over the summer. This year, we are also adding a bonus prize for kids who complete a blackout. Additionally, we translate our English Book Bingo so that we have a French version available as well. Our Book Bingo was a huge success last year and overall it is very easy to put together!

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.

We’ l l discuss the tensions and challenges of navigating changes in both the Libraries’ instruction program as well as within ATWP, as well as the opportunities we have for developing a shared pedagogical approach and connecting the Libraries more effectively with campus curriculum planning and strategic enrollment management.
