Supercharged Storytimes

Supercharged Storytimes

Supercharged Storytimes is a transformative way to approach planning, executing, and reviewing storytime plans using scientific research and proven methods of success. Through an IMLS grant, the Washington State Library funded Project VIEWS2 to discover ways to tie library activities to educational results and brain development. Children’s librarians can make a difference in children’s lives, and the VIEWS2 research details these concepts.


Class participants will learn the Project VIEWS 2 framework and planning tools and will create a storytime plan using the framework that they can take back to their library. Open to anyone who works in children’s services and plans storytimes.


Workshop is taught by Caitlin August and is taught with permission of the authors, Kathleen Campana, J. Elizabeth Mills, and Saroj Nadkarni Ghoting
