What is Library 2.0 anyway and how can it make your life as a children's librarian easier? From your department's website to planning and advertising programming, Library 2.0 offers a more user-centered approach to library services. Find out only what you need to know about L2 without getting bogged down in the techie-talk and how exactly you can embrace it and put it to good use at your library! (will not be presented at Shaler)
What's New in Children's and YA Books (working title)
Learn about the best and brightest in children's and young adult literature. (will not be presented in Norristown)
Only a Few? See what you can do!
Are you "flying solo" in your children's department? How do you balance collection developement, programming, summer reading, school visits and all the rest as only one person? Come and learn some helpful time-saving tips and ways to make your work life easier and more fulfilling all the while benefitting your youngest of patrons.
School-Age Programming Made Simple
Once a child outgrows preschool and kindergarten storytimes, what kinds of programming will keep them coming to the library? Walk way with ready-to-go programs for 2-6 grade.
CSI @ Your Library
A hands-on mystery for YOU to solve using actual investigative techniques. This teen-tested program is easly and cheaply duplicated in your library. We will give you all you need to host your own Crime Scene Investigation. This program can be easily adapted for younger children and/or families. You will leave this session with all you need to host your own night of intrigue.
Still working out another location and also on the cost which I am going to keep as low as possible! The presenters have graciously agreed to present for the cost of mileage and an overnight hotel stay if the distance requires, so low-cost will be possible! (Thank you so very much). The bulk of the expense will be lunch.
If you have any questions, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
AND ONE BIG MAJOR MAJOR thank you to all of the libraries who are hosting. THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
Information about the workshop will be in the February PaLA Bulletin!
