In this webinar, Brittany Jacobs demonstrates how to transform the informal setting of a public library into a place where "play" in the guise of game-based learning becomes a natural and exciting process for children and young students. She also discusses how to incorporate existing programs such as the makerspace, storytime, and book clubs to play to your strengths; more effectively utilize the tools and resources you have; and transform your library.
