Event description

Description

Every Local Authority in Scotland is invited to this exciting free event run by the Scottish Reading Strategy, in partnership with SLIC.


Wednesday 20th February at AK Bell Library, Perth.


10.00am till 3.30pm


Three places per authority are available for library staff and we have excellent practical sessions and an inspirational author.


The day will start off with Scottish author Sara Sheridan telling us why reading and libraries are so important.


After brief updates from the three Reading Strategy Groups and SLIC, we will then split into groups and everyone will attend the following sessions:



- Podcasting by Falkirk Libraries

A brief look at What Podcasting can offer your library service based on the Falkirk Libraries, PLIF funded Library Love project. We will touch on how to set up your own podcast and keep it going, the items you could include, which kit we used and how much it all costs.


- Reading Dogs by Canine Concern

Calum and Skye will be with us explaining how a fully trained Therapet Reading Dog can help engage even the most reluctant of readers in public and school libraries.


- Digital Storytelling by Scottish Book Trust

Digital storytelling has helped Inverclyde libraries reach out to a wide variety of under represented audiences, inspiring them to learn digital skills and tell their stories in a fun and creative way. In this workshop, you can find out what a digital story is and how to create one, and watch some digital stories created during Inverclyde’s Digital Storytelling Residency project. Digital Storyteller Paul Bristow and Heritage Outreach Officer Alison Nolan will also explain how the project fits into the library service’s outreach strategy. We hope you’ll leave inspired to find out more about this exciting approach to community outreach!


Lunch and refreshments are provided.
