Hey Crozet Community,
Our library crew is missing you all like crazy, and I know you might be missing us too. We’re hosting some virtual programs while we are closed, and there are a lot of other great virtual services that we are offering too. I hope you’ll take a moment to check out some of these things – and tune in tomorrow for a Parenting with Neuroscience with Erin Clabough, a Crozetian neuroscientist and mom of four who will be talking about using neuroscience in parenting, and touching on parenting in the coronavirus isolation world!
To prevent Zoom bombers, you must register online at jmrl.org to make sure you get the email with Zoom information. If you have questions about how to join an online program, let me know. And if you don’t already, we also have a tone of content on social media – boredom busters, storytime videos, and more, that can help keep you entertained during the quarantine.
Your friendly neighborhood librarian,
Upcoming Virtual Programs
Parenting with Neuroscience with Erin Clabough, PhD
Friday April 24 at 10-11:30am
We live in a world currently defined by a pandemic response, but without compassion, we have nothing. How can we teach compassion, especially when we are socially isolated? Neuroscientist and mother Erin Clabough will discuss how parents can use neuroscience to help their children develop empathy, creativity, and self-control. Erin Clabough is a professor at UVa and the author of Second Nature, which can be downloaded as an eBook on Libby.
Registration required, no limit. Via Zoom.
