From stop motion animation to film discussion, media literacy, digital citizenship and  and makerspaces, the school and public librarians who completed the Media Smart Libraries badge certification program, have learned a lot and are ready to share their experiences and ideas with colleagues. Participants will come away inspired by the stories of these library leaders that will not only provide how-to information, resources, and new programming ideas, but allow plenty of time for audience Q&A. Come hear for yourself that it is not as hard as you might think to implement digital and media literacy activities into your library!
