First MGOL Goslings Training


This past week, I presented my first training for MGOL Goslings outside of the trainings I’ve done with the original Goslings team at Port Discovery Children’s Museum in Baltimore. Six incredible children’s librarians from the Public Library in Mobile, Alabama who are passionate about helping parents with babies in NICUs participated in a day-long training that involved lots of background information, hands-on prep, a sample program and brain-storming. I’m looking forward to hearing their stories once the program officially begins.
