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).

STEM Inspiration Conference

I love hearing from colleagues who have flown the coop, so to speak, and are working in libraries outside of our system.  First of all, I love to hear from them because I like them, and love to hear what they are up to and what they are thinking about.  Second, they often share cool tidbits with me that I can pass on to everyone else!

This past week I got an email from Ashley Bieber, who used to be the teen librarian in Eau Claire (also former Youth Services Section Chair).  She is now working for the Hennepin County Library, and told me about a STEM conference she is planning to attend at the end of November, sponsored by the University of Minnesota Extension called Capturing Imaginations:  Building Skills.  This looks like a pretty exciting conference, and a great way to perk up the Oncoming Winter Blues.  Look here for registration information.

Bonus:  if you go, you'll get to see Ashley!
