From Catherine Stanton at Madison Library District:
We're sending out a little more information and another feeler for what you're interested in and inquiring about who would like to participate and attend. As a reminder, we're planning this as a no-frills and most likely absolutely free conference (-so how can you call it a conference?) on Friday, April 19 here at the Madison Library District in Rexburg.
These are ideas that have been brought up and are being considered
*Round Tables on:
Teen and Tween Activities
Director's Housekeeping and Headaches
*Virtual Fun: GoodReads Challenges and Wandoo
*Reader's Advisories - Children's? Teen's? Fiction? Nonfiction?
*Getting and Keeping Sponsors
*3D Printers and Pens
*Alternative Collections (we hear that Rigby and Driggs may have some good ideas to share)
*Resources available through the Family History Center (video and sound conversion, photo digitization, etc.)
*Cataloging stuff . . .
*Possible author visit or skype
At this point we'd really like to know three things:
1 - What topics interest you
2 - If you or someone on your staff can lead a session on ......
3 - If you're planning to attend.
Bekka has put together a website page for your input.
Please take the time to give us that information soon so that we can arrange for #1 and #2, and frankly, if we don't hear about #3, there isn't much cause to worry about #1 and #2.
We look forward to your input.
