Summer Reading Workshop
The NCLS Summer reading workshop will be held on Thursday, March 7, 2019. During this half day workshop, we’ll explore how to incorporate this year’s CSLP theme into your summer programming, talk about how to work with community partners, and get a hands-on look at the new NCLS mobile maker kits. Bring an appetite for lunch and a bag for all the swag you’ll take home with you. Sign up for the NCLS Service Center or attend through videoconferencing at Potsdam or Oswego.
