Welcome to this latest attempt to connect librarians from west-central Wisconsin with each other! Please send in content (booklists, ideas, photos, etc.), and comment on posts so we can help each other. If you were using feedmyinbox to get new posts sent to you before, you'll need to switch to another service (blogtrottr works like feedmyinbox, googlereader is a good blog-reader to try).

Summer Library Program and Youth Services Workshop Follow-up

Last week more than 50 librarians from around the IFLS region gathered for a workshop to prepare for the Summer Library Program, but also so much more.  We had an inspiring keynote talk from Holly Storck Post about planning and evaluating programs, reaching hard-to-reach populations, making changes, and advocating for youth services.  She did some great exercises that have provided me with blog and professional development fodder for several weeks, so watch for more about that!

The second part of the day included breakout sessions from IFLS librarians about topics ranging from teen programming to developmentally appropriate practice to music in storytime to sharing/promoting SLP internally and outside to self-care and managing change to a big old idea swap.  Wow, do we ever work with some fabulous folks!

If you didn't have a chance to come to the workshop, check here for resources from the workshop.  If you have questions, let me know!
