We had a great turnout for our summer reading workshop last week - not to mention good discussions, superlative crafts, and useful tools to help make this summer a success. The slides and handouts are now available on the NCLS website. Thanks to everyone who came out, to our excellent guest presenters, and of course, to the weather for cooperating. :)
One of the main themes of this year's workshops was collaboration. In addition to local organizations, don't forget to consider offical NYS partners - including 4-H and Hunger Solutions!
