School Library Chats for 2012-2013

Are you looking for new ideas to use or ways to promote your school library? Then these opportunities are for you!

Please join us for another year of informal School Library Chats with colleagues across the state. Anyone working in a school library is welcome. School librarians and library paraprofessionals often report they have no time for travel to meetings or to attend webinars, but they would appreciate a chance to talk with others, share ideas and ask questions. The School Library Chat is a chance to do just that.

School Library Coordinators, Mary G. Johnson and Joan Upell, will host these chats at 3:00 CT for those East River and again at 3:00 MT for West River on the following dates:

  • Length: 1 hour
  • Location: online
  • Audio: toll-free telephone
