I registered for the "Check In" webinar and was never sent any email with information about the webinar on February 6th.  I tried to register again today, since I hadn't received the email, and still have nothing.  Guess I'll have to miss out on this one.  What a shame.

Will this be recorded and available on the website? We had a LYRASIS egathering/Staff meeting at the same time.

They sent out an email with the links for both the slides alone & the slides & audio to those that we able to login and be there, so they probably still have it handy to email out to those who couldn't attend.

Thank you Jennifer. I did not register, so if someone from YALSA is willing to email me the info I would be very appreciative! kmullins@kendallvillelibrary.org

Self-Directed Programs: Scavenger Hunts

An amazing way to get your tweens and teens to know the “unfamiliar” bits of your library is to do self-directed scavenger hunts. You know that your “kids” tend to congregate to one particular area- whether it's your teen space, a place with the most comfortable chairs or a low table for card gaming, or Read More →
