School Library Chats 2012-2013
Thursday, April 11, at 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm CT; and again at 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm MT
Presented by Joan Upell and Mary G. Johnson, School Library Coordinators

Are you looking for new ideas to use or ways to promote your school library? Then this opportunity is for you!

Please join us for the final informal School Library Chat 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. No need to register ahead of time.

Thursday, April 25, at 11:00 am – 12:00 pm CT
Presented by Colleen Kirby, Assistant State Librarian

Join Colleen Kirby as she talks about the available services. Maybe you have patrons in your community that could use these services. Please bring your questions, and she will answer them for you.
