It's been awhile!

It's been awhile since I have posted and some of you have expressed interest in what I have been doing.  Here's some of the neat stuff that I have been doing this fall (posts to follow someday):
  • Our school outreach program got pushed into high gear by participating in the ConnectED Library Challenge.  Our goal is to give every student in our service area a library card. Our library district hosts 47 schools in five districts, plus residents in a sixth.  We brought our first (and largest) school district on in September to great success and are slowly rolling this out to the other districts.  Our challenge right now is keeping up with demand and figuring out what is sustainable. 
  •  Along with that, I have done 4 presentations on our school outreach program since the beginning of October.  While one was for our library board and another for our coop, our school outreach librarian (plus some others for 1) have also presented at our state library association annual conference and our state media specialist preconference.  I now have a presenting break until PLA-if you're there on Thursday afternoon and are interested in school outreach, stop by our presentation.
  • Last week I attended Family Place training in New York.  It was a great experience and I highly recommend it to everyone.  My brain is currently spinning with future changes to go along with that certification. 
So that's where I am at.  This is on top of my manager duties, reference desk, programming, and other miscellaneous tasks that make up my day.  I will be honest-I still haven't put away our Trick or Treat supplies as many days lately I drop a pile on my desk and grab another to go off again.  I will be back and will have some great stuff for you all!
