Summer Library Program Workshop!

CSLP Proprietary Image
Don't forget to register for this year's Summer Library Program Workshop, February 13 at the Menomonie Alliance Church (502 21st. Street North).  This is one of my favorite workshops of the year, because the energy and enthusiasm and laughter-per-minute is always at the highest level for any other workshop.  Why is that?  Because of who is attending!  Add yourself to the mix and join us for this great experience.

This year, I'm especially excited.  First, we'll welcome Sara Bryce from the LaCrosse Public Library.  She's got an important, thought-provoking, funny and irreverent blog, and tons of great ideas about programs, managing behavior in the children's room, and promotion and outreach.  Then we have 3 of our own stars, Julie Belz (Ellsworth); Georgia Jones (New Richmond) and Kathy Larson (Bloomer) who will be describing the ways they integrate STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) concepts and exploration into preschool programs.  After lunch, one more fabulous IFLS presenter, Colleen Zertler (Menomonie), will talk about the fabulous science and technology projects she's done with teens, and then we'll hear from Laurie Bartz from the Hedberg Public Library in Janesville about working with teens in the summer (and other times of year, too).

Sounds like too fun to miss, doesn't it?  Register by February 6 and get ready to Fizz and Boom!
