Bina-=North Branch B-port
23:26
I have Little Hands and we do crafts so easy even I can do them...I have done Matisse, and other artists from time to time.
Lauren Gledhill
23:26
both impressionists! :)
Samantha
23:41
This would be great virtually! I'm sure you could find online galleries for each artist and maybe even do online art paint programs so youre not dependent on supplies. THanks I might try it!
ebbaj
23:42
Just went through the "art" section in our nonfiction area to weed and it reminded me how many FABULOUS art books we have that people may not be checking out. Made me want to do a program using all of these books. I like hearing how a similar program worked well,
Laura DiLullo
24:10
What ages of kids?
Tracy Danbury Library
24:17
6-10
Lauren Gledhill
25:27
Are you using nonfiction or fiction books? Or both? If you're just using one you can tie in the other, even if just reading a chapter from a chapter book
Samantha
25:42
there's a great alexander calder craft with cardstock paper
ebbaj
25:56
Pinterest has a ton of artist-related art projects for kids
Allison Murphy wallingford
26:39
love Pinterest!
Heather Baker
26:46
I think Herve tullets workshop book would translate well online!
Samantha
27:03
what
Lauren Gledhill
27:05
thanks!
Jennifer @ Cragin
27:14
Well known book illustrators would be cool to showcase as well
Laura DiLullo
28:46
What was the resource for binding the stories?
deirdreajohnson
28:51
Speaking of Harry Potter, would anyone like to hear about the relay race? That depends on kids being actually in the library, though - I’d love to know if people can think of a way I could get it online!
Marisa Avon Library
29:12
I can volunteer to get in the queue to talk about my Avon Library teen lock ins. (Hope you're keeping track, Kym!).
Emily - Cromwell
29:43
I'm also game to talk about my program whenever!
Cathy Potter
30:02
Could you have them mail you their text and drawings to put the book together?
deirdreajohnson
30:13
I was thinking of saving Mythology Mondays for the school-library cooperation session, but I would be happy to talk about it today, too, if people are interested.
Christina - Bristol

Kym you are the best
Kymberlee Powe
31:55
lol. thanks
Bina-=North Branch B-port
32:44
Let's remember that not all kids have tecn at home that can support fancy opportunities
Christina - Bristol
33:39
Bina - we’re lucky because our schools are providing kids with technology who don’t have it and they should be able to keep the Chromebooks through the summer.
Kymberlee Powe
34:00
Yes Bina. That's going to be the biggest hurdle this summer
amyrosenfield
35:16
sharing the hats?
ebbaj
35:43
If there's time I can jump in with a program
Kymberlee Powe
37:31
Yeah I see you Ericka
Marisa Avon Library

Maybe printable Harry Potter trivia? Maybe make a grocery list of Harry Potter ingredients, like ginger (or ginger powder) or make your own butter beer, and ask them to bake using Maybe printable Harry Potter trivia? Maybe make a grocery list of Harry Potter ingredients, like ginger (or ginger powder) or make your own butter beer, and ask them to bake using fun ingredients. There is recipe for Polyjuice potion jello. looks like boogers. We've made itoops meant to send to all
Lauren Gledhill
41:23
Marisa, I think you did send to all... I love that idea!
deirdreajohnson
41:42
Great ideas, Marisa! Thank you!
Marisa Avon Library
42:02
Good! Polyjuice potion jello, using clear gelatin, melted sorbet, ginger ale, GROSS looking.
Jennifer @ Cragin
42:04
On PInterest, there is a Harry Potter Would You Rather game which is fun
Kymberlee Powe
42:21
Oh that sounds fun Jennifer
deirdreajohnson
43:20
I like the alternative recipes idea a lot! I’ve got a “butter beer” recipe which is (to me) much less disgusting than the “real” butter beer. It would be great to see what the kids come up with!
Christina - Bristol
43:43
Remember in HP how Filch took a class for Squibs by correspondence? Maybe set up a “Magical Correspondence” class!
deirdreajohnson
43:58
Great, Christina! Thank you!
Emily - Cromwell
45:03
There are some great ones on here Judy!
deirdreajohnson
45:35
I love those ideas, Emily! Thank you!
Bina-=North Branch B-port
45:40
Kids draw a picture of an owl to carry the correspondance
Kymberlee Powe
46:34
Bina. That's a great idea!
Kymberlee Powe
49:03
Kids can video themselves and their families doing these to post of social media and kids at home can do these and send photos to the library also
Kymberlee Powe
49:08
These can be great family programs
amyrosenfield
49:57
Marisa, sounds so fun!
Emily - Cromwell
50:22
Love the shower cap game!
Kymberlee Powe

Got it! Thank you so much!

Hi, Emily!
Samantha
53:25
You should check out the podcast SMASHBOOMBEST- it's a debate podcast for and by kids with crazy topics
Amanda Welsh
54:33
how is everyone sharing virtual programs with patrons? Facebook?
Paula Montes
54:46
Such a wealth of ideas so awesome!
Christina - Bristol
54:59
Amanda - Zoom and Facebook depending upon if it’s interactive or not
Lauren Gledhill
55:16
We put our Zoom storytime links on our web calendar, and we're posting them on FB and in our email newsletter too
Bina-=North Branch B-port
55:43
Kym..can you send us the chat text?
Marisa Avon Library
55:56
I'm going to lead a teen book discussion tomorrow on Google Hangouts (now called Google Meet),
Steve Zampino
56:12
I will try this with my teen leadership group
Jennifer @ Cragin
56:23
That sounds super fun
Allison Murphy wallingford
56:24
We are doing FB Live for storytime and Zoom for crafting programs. We will send them the Zoom link once they've registered.
Emily Kalotai
56:33
Sounds fun, definitely trying it
Bina-=North Branch B-port

NYPL had a bracket for best books in honor of their 125th anniv. Winnie the Pooh won!

deirdreajohnson
01:03:48
It’s stressful! We have so many great programs planned.
Jennifer @ Cragin
01:03:54
I'm trying to think of virtual programs for summer that would work. All this uncertainty is hard to plan for....
Samantha
01:03:56
does anybody have pointers for an online spellingbee?
Emily Kalotai
01:04:25
I'm trying to think of virtual back-up plans to what I was planning on originally
Allison Murphy wallingford
01:04:29
I think Caitlin from Stratford did an online spelling bee
Judy Beahan
01:04:47
Kim can you please resend the email for next two day's worksops.
Bina-=North Branch B-port
01:04:59
we need an unconference to evaluate how we do all this remotely after the season is over!
Heather Baker
01:05:05
I’m under a lot of pressure to plan and alternate plan, but have no time to do it with current online programs!
Karla: Stonington Free
01:05:21
Are you using READSquared more?
Jennifer @ Cragin
01:05:33
Seems like we could share programs so everyone doesn't have to reinvent the wheel...
Mary-Jane
01:05:33
I'm wondering if the kids and parents will have online burnout because everything school-related is online right now?
ebbaj
01:06:13
We're sending storytime at home programs by email currently for families our littles, so to minimize screen time for kids 3 and under. Any other ideas for things for young children that are screen-free?
Emily - Cromwell
01:06:25
I was wondering the same thing Mary-Jane! I asked my teens about it at our last virtual program and they said they were really looking forward to seeing people for not school-related stuff
deirdreajohnson
01:06:27
Sorry, Kimberly! I meant to post to everyone.
Bina-=North Branch B-port
01:06:41
excellent point. Perhaps we can have short meets to start them on an outdoor activity or send a craft kit to their email to do on their own.
Bina-=North Branch B-port
01:06:57
but the more fun our activities are, the less like school!
Emily - Cromwell
01:06:59
But I'm definitely trying to think of some alternativews!
Bina-=North Branch B-port
01:07:45
does anyone know if ABCMouse has a free version for families?
Paula Montes
01:07:53
for the little ones finger rhymes and finger plays and sing along music videos that the librarians lead
Lauren Gledhill
01:07:57
I imagine it would be fun for kids to get something in the mail from a library. (As an adult I still get joy when there's actual mail from an actual person!)
Karla: Stonington Free

Thanks!

Yes send mail to the little ones with things to do at home
Lynn P.
01:08:39
I heard some performers are livestreaming or recording their performances so you can still use them over the summer.
Bina-=North Branch B-port
01:09:05
If we can't enter the library, how do we access their mail? and postal costs?
Christina - Bristol
01:09:11
We’re actually quarantine-ing our mail for a few days after it gets delivered every day. The USPS has also expressed concern about the future of mail deliveries… IDK what the best option is moving forward.
Emily - Cromwell
01:09:29
Ms. Janine emailed me and is streaming her Sign & Sing every Thursday morning on Facebook
Bina-=North Branch B-port

Diane Antezzo
01:11:44
Please share on Goodnight moon if you know performers doing virtual programs. I know Sciencetellers is
Amanda Welsh
01:11:45
Maybe a travelling stuffed animal?
Karla: Stonington Free
01:11:49
Thank you, everyone.
Heather Baker
01:12:01
so many of our Facebook online programs are being used even in other states and
Judy Beahan
01:12:05
I agree statewide! Schools can promote it too!
Heather Baker
01:12:07
other countries!
Cathy Potter
01:12:33
Something along the lines of the passport but maybe ideas along the 100 Ways to Raise a Reader
Samantha
01:12:34
we're doing a #regiononeunity hashtag and a #howyoudoin *insertname of town* hashtag so maybe we can do like a #CTunity one
Emily - Cromwell
01:12:36
Let us know if there's anything we can do to help Kym!
Lynn P.
01:12:42
love this idea!!!!
