IFC Fun All Year Long Workshop!

Mary Zdrojewski, Scio

This presentation features fun library activities that align with the Empire Information Fluency Continuum and focus on a student-centered, inquiry-driven, school library program. Great for school librarians and classroom teachers, this day-long workshop includes a variety of songs, games, crafts, and activities for teaching information literacy skills to students in grades K-6. The presentation will include an introduction to the Empire Information Fluency Continuum and how to make it work for your library, crowd favorites from previous years' workshops, and all new student-tested and librarian-approved fun activities to keep you celebrating library skills from September to June and beyond. All participants will be given a copy of Mary Z's book and a CD of the documents to take and make your own. Co-sponsored by the Jefferson-Lewis School Library System and the St. Lawrence-Lewis School Library System.

“All public school districts and nonpublic schools are eligible for membership in a School Library System. School Library Systems are state-aided consortia which provide vital resources which may be beyond the fiscal ability of their members. In addition to fostering “best practices” in teaching and librarianship, School Library Systems offer their members a variety of services including: resource sharing; electronic catalogs and databases; interlibrary loan; professional development; and curriculum support.”

It is our mission to provide our member librarians with the support, resources and professional development to continue to be both educational leaders and collaborative partners with the teachers and administrators in each of our component districts. We facilitate equitable access to information resources for all students and instructional members in each district and we are committed to helping our libraries in their efforts to help each and every student meet and exceed the challenges of becoming college and career ready by graduation.
