Project LAMP: Libraries as Arenas for Mathematical Play
Presented by Sturdy Knight & Caro Williams-Pierce, University at Albany, SUNY
Math is often seen as a "gatekeeper" subject to the STEM fields and to success in education more generally, one that can be deeply daunting and fear-inspiring to learners of all ages. Even librarians who are otherwise confident in designing and facilitating playful learning for other STEM/STEAM subjects may feel lost when it comes to making math programs that will appeal to their audience.

The Show Must Go On! Librarianship through the eyes of a Theatre major
Presented by Carolyn Bennett Glauda, Southeastern NY Library Resources Council
With a resume that includes work as a stage manager, wardrobe supervisor, location scout, and props coordinator in theatre, film, and television, it has been surprising how frequently the skills I picked up on those jobs apply to my current work as a librarian. Producing quality library programming is essentially no different than producing a Broadway show. In this presentation I will share some of the secrets of my previous professional work and how those skills and techniques can apply to anyone who has to produce events, work with the public, wrangle students, or keep calm and get everything done before the curtain goes up at 8.
