The Islip Public Library is very excited to be offering a virtual visit including all libraries on Thursday, August 6 at 7:30 pm on the Islip Library's facebook page with author, Dan Gutman for grades 1 - 6. Join Dan for a fun interactive adventure in which he'll read one of his picture books, share a chapter of a My Weird School book that has not been published yet, talk about the power of persistence, and answer any questions you may have. You will be able to see this virtual event LIVE with us. https://www.facebook.com/Islip-Public-Library-121297121233720/

Good afternoon! As public libraries are in the beginning phases of reopening, we have created a new version of our Affordable Things to Do on Long Island packet, which includes virtual and curbside activities for the whole family. Please click here to view it and use however you like. We hope this packet can be useful to you and your patrons this summer as we adjust to a new normal. Have a great day and enjoy!
Join us for a special virtual book discussion with author Emma Steinkellner on her book The Okay Witch. SCLS has graciously increased the number of copies available on live-brary. If participating, we ask that you return your copy when you finish so we can accommodate as many participants as possible. Participants who rsvp at bit.ly/CLASCMayBkDisc will receive a zoom link to attend approximately 1 day before the event. Please click here for a flyer. Hope to see you there!
We at CLASC hope this email finds everyone safe and healthy at home. It was suggested by a CLASC member that we share some professional development resources and webinars that we can take advantage of during this period of social distancing. Now is a great time to earn professional development hours!
Below please find suggestions from CLASC members and board members.
Do you have more suggestions? Please email us back with any webinars/virtual programs that you have found to be beneficial and we will forward them on to the membership.
