from Terry Roper, Library Consultant
Hello All, Just touching base with you regarding professional development opportunities for librarians, library staff, and educators available to you as part of your membership in the Library Services Cooperative. Remember, in addition to these sessions, membership entitles you to options including site visits, library program evaluation, and collection development assistance for private schools, charter schools and small districts as well as cluster or site training customized to your needs.
I have attached a flyer for the session on Feb. 21st as well as our Spring flyer but am adding some annotations below...
March 28—Teri Lesesne will be of interest to anyone interested in reading, new literature and free books!
April 28—Pat Miller will repeat her hands-on session for attendees interested in literature and literacy activities—attendees will receive a book as well as all the materials needed to hand-craft the tailored activities to enhance and deepen comprehension of popular children’s literature. Great for PreK, K-3 teachers as well as library staff!
May 16—Nancy Jo Lambert will share her story in how she built her library website and the success she has encountered with parents, students, and teachers. Nancy will discuss the content she adds to her site and the tools she uses on the website to tell the library story. Check out her site at http://www.rbelibrary.com and then come armed with questions dealing with improving your library virtual presence.
June 12—Suzy Red will do her thing with Trials and Courage in Award Winning literature focusing on the newest Bluebonnet list. Attendees must pay a $30.00 materials fee at registration.
We are working on a great summer list of sessions and, as always, appreciate any feedback, suggestions, and ideas you have to offer.
