Upcoming CLA Workshop in Ottawa – Libraries & Teens: Making the most of library services for teens and young adults
Posted by CLA Govt Library and Info Mgmt Professionals Network on 2010/09/03
How and why should libraries recognize and advocate for teens as assets in the community? What can we do to make sure that the library becomes an asset in teens’ lives?
This one-day event will explore how libraries are rethinking goals, re-prioritizing resources, redesigning spaces, and reaching out to this very important client group.
* Share strategies for planning and maintaining strong teen programming.
* Explain how to formalize a commitment to youth as part of strategic goals and plans.
* Share successful models of service and identify ways to connect and communicate with teens.
* Explore trends in reading material for teens.
This workshop is also an opportunity to connect with fellow library professionals who are excited and passionate about teen services. Roundtable discussions and poster presentations will allow for further brainstorming, conversation and sharing of ideas.
Date: Monday, October 4, 2010, 9:00 am to 4:30 pm
