Celebrating diversity means being accepting of all people, regardless of their race, culture, or religion. Learning about different cultural aspects offers unique and new experiences for children. Hands-on craft activities provide an interactive and fun way to introduce children to the concept of diversity and multiculturalism.

In this webinar, we will define diversity and multiculturalism, cultural appropriateness, and highlight crafts and activities that will help teach children to respect and celebrate the differences in all people. By merging diversity and equity into our library programming we can build cultural relevance into any craft program.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Have ideas for craft programs that incorporate attention to diversity, inclusivity, equity, and reflect the communities that they serve
  • Develop strategies for learning about how to discuss diversity with children and families in the community.
  • Identify and offer ways to help children learn about diversity and multiculturalism.
  • Gain an increased understanding of diversity and multiculturalism as it applies to public libraries and children’s programming.

This webinar will be of interest to: Academic Library, School Library, Librarians, Library staff, volunteers, and MLIS students
