Navajo County Library District (NCLD) is blooming with new ideas and events. One of the newest positions for the library district is the Library District Programs Coordinator. Our vision for this position includes interacting with individual libraries and their program staff to enhance events and activities district wide. This vision also includes providing programming support where it is needed around the library district.
Specifically, our plans include creating online/virtual content for families that may include story time for younger ages, STEM discovery for older children and teens as well as book clubs for teens and adults. We will supply training and programming support for volunteer libraries and Native American libraries within the district. Another facet of our plans includes providing beneficial state programs for libraries that do not have the resources or staff to send to the training. We will also continue to supply patron training for basic technology classes with our mobile computer lab.

Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.
Navajo County Library District (NCLD) hosted a Leap into Science workshop at Heber-Overgaard Rim Community Library on June 9th, 2021 from 11-3 pm. We showed science activities based on shadow and light, which were viewed during the “open house” workshop and provided take-home kits for families to replicate the science activities at home.
You can expect more programs like this in the future!
Leap into Science is a nationwide program, developed by The Franklin Institute, that integrates open-ended science activities with children's books, designed for children ages 3-10 and their families. We empower educators to offer programs in community settings like libraries, museums, and out-of-school time programs to engage underserved audiences in accessible and familiar settings.
