School Library Chats for 2013-2014

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, Marta Stirling and Joan Upell, will host four chats throughout the school year at 4:00 CT for those East River and again at 4:00 MT for West River. Join us at whatever time works in your schedule. Chat for the entire time or just a portion of the hour that works best for you! Participants will need to have both a phone and a computer with Internet access. There is no registration required and no credit offered.

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


Each chat will begin at 4:00 CT and again at 4:00 MT

  • September 10
  • November 5
  • February 4
