Spring has arrived and the urge for fresh starts has returned, whether that means finally facing the unruly makerspace supply closet or recommitting to making learning a regular part of your work.
While we might not be able to help you clean out that closet, we can help you with your continuing education! WebJunction's Betha Gutsche provides a great example of how one library made learning a key part of what they do in the story Self-Directed Achievement on a Small Scale.
If adding or reinvigorating STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programming is on your spring to-do list, then make sure to attend the upcoming webinar Make, Do, Share: Build a STEM Learning Community on Thursday, April 28.
One way to combine the outdoors with STEM programming is through gardening, and for inspiration you can find many of examples of library gardens in this article on WebJunction. And do let us know how you are implementing STEM programs at your library in our April poll.
Spring is also a time for healthy beginnings, and WebJunction has many resources to help you examine your community's health needs and how to meet them.
The latest addition to these resources is in recognition of National Minority Health Month. Librarians from the Office of Minority Health Resource Center Knowledge Center Library have written about the many free consumer health information resources they offer that you and your patrons can tap for free.
Are you ready for even more inspiration? The webinar Incubate Creativity at Your Library on Tuesday, April 19 might be just what you need to revive your ingenuity and turn your library into a creativity incubator.
