Click here for the Region 10 Library Services cooperative summer professional development flyer. Some highlights I would like to point out include:
June 4---Carolyn Foote, technolibrarian, blogger and White House Champion of Change for Connected Learning will be joining us from Austin for a full day of big picture/forward thinking issues around library design, policies, missions, etc. This session will be of use to anyone thinking of designing/redesigning their library as well as library staff who are seeking to get a handle on library policies and best practices. Check out Carolyn’s blog and join us on 6/4. http://futura.edublogs.org/

TexQuest database sessions which are open to all educators in Region 10 with a TexQuest subscription. On June 25th we will have an elementary and a secondary Encyclopedia Britannica session. On August 10th, we will have a trainer from Gale in one room offering an elementary and secondary session, and a trainer from Britannica offering an elementary and secondary session so you can attend on 8/10 and have a half day training for each of these valuable resources. Invite your teachers!!!
