I am very pleased to announce that the Teen Librarian Training Initiative is the recipient of a Harold Hacker grant for professional development in 2014.
The grant will help fund a series of ten Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) webinars ending with a conference where all participants will share what they have learned and showcase what programs and services they plan to provide to teens in their libraries.
The training initiative is designed to provide professional development and networking opportunities for public library staff serving teens in the Monroe and Pioneer library systems. Workshops will take place throughout 2014 in locations within both systems. More details to come!
Now comes the exciting part: help the TLTI team choose the ten topics for the training. I've created a short Google Form survey HERE. Please take a few minutes to choose the ten topics that will benefit you, your library, and your staff the most.
Questions? Please feel free to contact me, and thank you.
