First Tuesdays was designed as a continuing-education opportunity for staff of libraries in Washington State. This free web presentation, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., allows attendees to share their skills and successes and learn about new topics. The special-subject presentations, lasting about 60 minutes, are recorded so that others may listen at their own convenience.
Leaving the library for nature programming: backpacks and geocaches, presented by Kylie Fullmer, Ritzville Public Library and Brooke Pederson, Upper Skagit Library, February 7, 2017, 9:00 AM PACIFIC
Presenters Kylie Fullmer and Brooke Pederson, rural library directors from Eastern and Western Washington State, will review the lessons learned and best practices from their successful “leave-the-library,” nature-based programs. Kylie will present about her outdoor backpack kits, ready to be checked out for family adventures. Brooke will present about her local history focused “Cache in Concrete” geocache trail. Attendees will leave with ideas and templates to design their own self-directed, family-friendly, nature-based programs.
