Webinar Content: Virtual and in-person library programs for parents and infants are most meaningful when a broad range of factors are taken into consideration, including: 

• When, how, and why did library programs for babies begin? 

• What are the physical and emotional needs of new parents and babies in the context of these programs? 

• How can library programs (virtual and on-site) help parents as their child’s first teacher? 

• What types of materials work well in baby programs, and how can they be adapted for an at-home audience? 

• What are age-appropriate, early literacy building activities that children’s librarians have used successfully online?

• Where can helpful resources for online baby program planning be found?  Webinar attendees will be expected to participate in all of the activities; please have a stuffed animal or doll ready to use occasionally as your baby!
