Fee:  Lampman Luncheon: $15; Spring Workshop: $10; special CSD member-only combined price for both luncheon and workshop: $20

The afternoon workshop includes:
  • a Guerrilla Storytime session!
  • tips, tried-and-true methods, and discussion on balancing work and extracurricular activities like CSD, ALA,  ALSC, and OBOB. If you've got questions or ideas, you are welcome to share!
  • and a presentation and small group discussion on how library staff can help facilitate Talking with Preschoolers About Race. Research shows that children not only recognize race from a very young age, but also develop racial biases by ages three to five. We will explore how to approach talking about race with preschool aged children and how to use picture books as conversation starters, along with time for discussion and reflection. Resources for further exploration will be provided.

  • In addition, you can stock up your bookshelves and support CSD at the same time by browsing our in-person book sale, featuring 2017 books for kids, teens, and adults! These books are available at a fraction of the cover price and will be on sale during the Spring Workshop only! 
Please contact the CSD Chair, Natasha Forrester Campbell, at csd@olaweb.org for more info.
