Making Sense of Sensory Storytime
Storytime is full of energy and sometimes loud. For many of us this is all fun & games but some children (and adults) can find this type of environment very overwhelming. This presentation will give attendees the resources and ideas to create a storytime which keeps in mind the sensory processing needs of children. The presenter will also highlight what was learned from the Sensory Storytime pilot program implemented at the Corner Brook Public Library.

I See Me: Why Diversity in Picture Books Matter
Picture books are so much more than fun words and bright pictures on a page. Books are mirrors for children that reflect the colour of their skin, their culture or their unique experiences. For many children, these reflections are the only times they see and read about others like themselves. As librarians, we are in a unique position to share picture books and we should always seek out diversity not only to provide mirrors but to provide windows to the world. Recommendations and book lists will be included.
