PSLA Conference

Hello All,

Just got back from the Pennsylvania School Librarians' Assocation Conference in Hershey. I feel like I'm writing the Monday morning Seen column in the local paper!

Spotted were Karen Payonk, Children's Librarian and Assistant Director of Lititz Public Library, and Kim Synder, Assistant for Meetings and Finance at the Pennsylvania Library Association and Lynn Moses, from PDE, Division of School Library Services.

Who else went? What did you think?

I talked to a lot of school librarians during the conference (imagine that!) and thought it might be a good idea to do article for the newletter about school library and public library cooperation. Sooooooooo please send me your stories! or have your school librarian send them to me. I know that at Bethel Park we couldn't get along without our school librarians and are so grateful to them for letting us in their buildings and for partnering with us for so many programs each month. Share your successes, or challenges with us!

If anyone is interested in the use of blogs and wikis, and the concetps of Library 2.0, School Library 2.0, check out the blog that I and one of the school librarians in the Bethel Park School District created for PSLA. We did a little presentation on Blogs and Wikis and School Library 2.0. It is here if you want to take a look.

Send your weblinks, your bloglinks, news, pictures, anything and we'll post it up here!

Have a great week!

Blessings,

ing :)
