Meaningful Making: Bridging STEM & Teen Programming
Libraries are striving to provide teens with programming opportunities that allow them to learn & collaborate with peers. One facet of programming that libraries are implementing are STEM Maker activities. We have developed a set of easy to follow program guides freely available online to support librarians to implement these activities. In this workshop, attendees will participate in Maker activities and experience fun & cost-effective possibilities for STEM-oriented Making in the library.

In Libraries We Trust: The Role of Libraries in the 2020 Census
Many projections and estimates used in funding allocations and general planning are based on the census. Therefore, it is critical to have a complete count of all Utahns. With this poster, librarians will learn that the Census is mandated in the US Constitution; why a complete count is so important for libraries; timeline; hot topics; population trends; how the State Data Center can help libraries; and what libraries can do to help get a complete count in their communities.

In Libraries We Trust: The Role of Libraries in the 2020 Census
Many projections and estimates used in planning are based on the census. Similarly, many funding allocations are based on population counts, like the LSTA funds used in Utah. It is critical to have a complete count of all Utahns. Libraries can offer trustworthy information about the census and provide vital services to residents, especially to hard-to-count populations. Join us as we learn about dependable sources of information and how to be more effective census ambassadors to our communities.
