Webinar: Cultivating Strong Girls--Library Programming That Builds Self-Esteem and Challenges Inequality

Enter your email to be notified of webinars and new blog posts.

In this webinar, Nancy Evans offers practical guidance on how to offer programming that will support the engagement, growth, and achievement of girls. The program plans are simple enough to be applied by everyone who works with girls. Presenting this type of programming allows librarians to build meaningful relationships, have a positive impact on patrons and in the community, and follow programming guidelines outlined in the Young Adult Library Services Association's report, "The Future of Library Services for and with Teens: A Call to Action." With gender bias, inequality, and low self-esteem issues still at the forefront for women and girls, public library programming that addresses these topics fills a genuine need.
