POSTPONED!!! Upcoming CLA Workshop in Ottawa – Libraries & Teens: Making the most of library services for teens and young adults‏

 

************UPDATE******************

Due to funding issues, the CLASY event will be postponed until January 2011.

First off, I apologize for the lack of postings. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks round here. I currently have a HUGE stack of library books that are calling out my name. I’ve chose Twenty Boy Summer by Sarah Ockler, so look for a review soon! 🙂

Ok, so now for the CLASY event. I posted about the group a while back but now that the event details have been arranged, I can share this info with you! 

Libraries & Teens: Making the most of library services for teens and young adults

How and why should libraries recognize and advocate for teens as assets in the community? What can we do to make sure that the library becomes an asset in teens’ lives?

This one-day event will explore how libraries are rethinking goals, re-prioritizing resources, redesigning spaces, and reaching out to this very important client group.

Speakers will:

    * Share strategies for planning and maintaining strong teen programming.
    * Explain how to formalize a commitment to youth as part of strategic goals and plans.
    * Share successful models of service and identify ways to connect and communicate with teens.
    * Explore trends in reading material for teens.

This workshop is also an opportunity to connect with fellow library professionals who are excited and passionate about teen services. Roundtable discussions and poster presentations will allow for further brainstorming, conversation and sharing of ideas.

Date: Monday, October 4, 2010, 9:00 am to 4:30 pm

I will be volunteering at the event. I plan on working on my networking skills as there seems to be many opportunities to mix and mingle!  See you there! 🙂
