Introducing Psalm 33, Thursdays at 2:30 in the Library!
This year we’re excited to launch Psalm 33, a weekly outreach and creativity-sparking series of sessions managed by Outreach and Instruction Librarian, Shane Ratzell and with each librarian and our Library Assistant taking turns to lead. Psalm 33 uses
Creativity = “Creativity is associated with unpredictability, using one’s imagination, original thinking, doing something in a way that has never been done, and taking initiative.” (Kirkendall & Krishen, 2015, p. 341)
Collaboration = A gathering of people that together “can also break routines and introduce fresh thinking,” a Wisdom of Crowds (Klieger, 2016, p. 128).
Creativity and Collaboration are two ways that boost the educational potential of anyone. Psalm 33 aims to bring these two concepts together and foster an environment that allows for people to do just that, be creative and collaborate.
Psalm 33 will include activities such as board games, trains, instrument playing, role playing, STEM programs, Legos and more. We want you to come and bring your ideas and help us shape Psalm 33 into something that you find enjoyable and profitable.
Psalm 33 is every Thursday, 2:30 pm – 5 pm, starting August 31st!!!
