Libraries Love Lakes Info Session
June 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDTFree
July is Lakes Appreciation Month! Join us June 2nd at 2 pm (Eastern Time) for a free, virtual information session to learn about an exciting initiative, Libraries Love Lakes, an outreach project pairing libraries with lake scientists to provide collaborative programming emphasizing the importance of lakes in our everyday lives.
The new librarieslovelakes.org website is a toolkit of online resources for community members and library professionals to plan and host lake-focused outreach events (virtual or in person!) for kids and library patrons during the July Lakes Appreciation Month.
Included on the new website are:
- favorite story time children’s books about lakes, water and wildlife
- fun and easy arts & craft activities
- suggested lesson plans and educational resources for students
- watershed education information for library patrons
- event flyers to promote your Libraries Love Lakes event
- and much more!
We hope you will join us to celebrate the importance of lakes with a Libraries Love Lakes program in your community for the July 2021 Lakes Appreciation Month. The info session is free and open to librarians, lake scientists, lake conservation organizations, community outreach educators, and others. Registration is required to receive the Zoom meeting link, sign up today for the June 2nd info session.
