The attached picture is me preparing to do a storytime from home. In addition to these, I work with the community’s institutions; schools and day cares, to provide early lit support to educators and parents.

While I’m usually an assistant manager my background is in children’s services, so while working from home I joined the children’s online programming committee to organize virtual children’s programming and was the point person for the Queens Pet Library where librarians go live with their pets on the QPL Facebook page! I’ve also done a storytime and a Harry Potter Craft.

I am the Assistant Manager of Langston Hughes Community Library and Cultural Center – part of Queens Public Library. While working from my kitchen table during COVID, I am acting as support for my staff and mainly am assisting to manage our virtual programs and professional development. This involves contacting presenters, managing programming schedules and outreach, encouraging and supporting staff for their programming, managing statistics, social media, providing resources, etc. As a staff we are working to build our community and provide information and engagement. We are striving to be present for our community in any way we can.

I’m a senior children’s librarian at the New York Public Library, serving children aged 0 to 13 years, although I do also work with teens. Some of the services I’ve provided during this time include: conducting themed online story times, creating and adapting at-home story time and activity guides for parents and caregivers, and communicating with educators to help provide library services. The slide on the laptop screen is taken from a presentation I made for an elementary school class. It talks about developing good research skills by using kid-friendly databases.
