Bridging the Long Island Library Community
Mastering life skills such as financial management, career development, cooking, and self-care are all important for young and emerging adults. Learning the ins and outs of adulthood is not easy and teens sometimes need a little extra help figuring things out. Libraries are the perfect place to connect with teens and teach them the essential skills they need to become adults. Join Kimberli Buckley, librarian, instructor, and author, as she talks about her journey of planning life skills programs for teens and the importance of providing these programs in the library. She will also offer many ideas for hands-on activities and personal anecdotes from her newly released book Teaching Life Skills at the Library.
Kimberli Buckley hails from a small town just east of San Francisco. She is a Senior Community Library Manager with Contra Costa County Library and an Associate Professor with San Jose State University’s School of Information. Her educational background includes a MLIS from San Jose State University and an MA Consciousness Studies from John F. Kennedy University. She has over fifteen years of experience in the library field with an emphasis in program planning and working with young adults. Her newly released book Teaching Life Skills at the Library focuses on how important life skills are for young adults in today’s world and provides hands-on activities for library professionals. Kimberli loves to be creative when it comes to library programming and uses her inner unicorn to bring her ideas to life.
