While we are currently closed to the public to prevent or slow the spread of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), the Alaska State Library is continuing to answer your reference questions by phone and email:
"The purpose of this toolkit is to provide library workers who work with and for tweens and teens with materials and resources for professional development, outreach, collections, and programs to successfully integrate the Maker mindset into programs and services."
Each year, libraries across the United States invite teens to a locally hosted lock-in on the same night to celebrate summer reading with online visits with well-known authors, fun contests, popular crafts, and multi-player games.
The Hands-On collection is a special collection apart from the Alaska State Museum's permanent collections. As part of Alaska State Museum's outreach to students in rural areas across the state, the Sheldon Jackson Museum maintains a loan program for schools, libraries, and museums in Alaska.
