Join us the Mid York Library System office for a special webinar viewing party of an ALA provided webinar!
Get kids moving during your program events, regardless of your level of experience with music or movement activities! Unlike traditional storytime models in which children are expected to sit quietly, music and movement storytimes encourage children to embody concepts and interact with others. In this workshop, expert children’s programmer Alyssa Jewell shows you how you can develop interactive learning experiences in which children engage in moving, music-making, and story drama.
