Youth Services Roundup 10/30/19

GIVEAWAY

NCLS is weeding one of our two copies of The Power of Play from our professional collection. We bought these a few years ago to support the Early Learning Spaces class and the mini-grant opportunity that went along with it, and it's a great resource for anyone interested in learning about the role of play in library service and how to incorporate that into your building. First response wins it!

SAVE THE DATE!

The date for the 2020 summer reading workshop has been set for Thursday, March 5. Look for registration details coming soon. In other summer reading news, DLD is asking us to check the flash drives containing the CSLP manual for any problems, such as missing files or not being able to access documents. Please let me know if you have any problems and I'll make sure to get you a replacement.

BATTLE POSTERS

Libraries in Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence counties can expect a tube containing this year's Battle of the Books poster in your delivery either this week or next. (Oswego libraries interested in getting involved in their battle should contact their local school librarian.) If your library is coordinating a local battle this year, please let me know by December 31.

SPOTLIGHT ON AUTHORS

From the ALSC blog: "November 1st is National Author’s Day, and what better way to celebrate than to hype some amazing authors you – and your patrons – should definitely be reading? Much like my August post, which focused on humorous book recommendations, I’ve asked some of the best librarians I know to weigh in. The question I posed: If you could only read children’s books by one author for an entire year, who would it be and why?"
