Eastern Idaho pop-up "Swap Meet"

Wednesday, February 06, 2019 9:47 AM | Erin Downey (Administrator)

From Catherine Stanton at Madison Library District:

Hi everyone,

We're sending out a little more information and another feeler for what you're interested in and inquiring about who would like to participate and attend. As a reminder, we're planning this as a no-frills and most likely absolutely free conference (-so how can you call it a conference?) on Friday, April 19 here at the Madison Library District in Rexburg.

These are ideas that have been brought up and are being considered

*Round Tables on:

Summer Reading

Storytimes

Teen and Tween Activities

Director's Housekeeping and Headaches

*Virtual Fun: GoodReads Challenges and Wandoo

*Reader's Advisories - Children's? Teen's? Fiction? Nonfiction?

*Italic Calligraphy

*Getting and Keeping Sponsors

*Creative Grants

*3D Printers and Pens

*Coding

*Making Games

*Active Shooter

*Alternative Collections (we hear that Rigby and Driggs may have some good ideas to share)

*Resources available through the Family History Center (video and sound conversion, photo digitization, etc.)

*Cataloging stuff . . .

*Possible author visit or skype

At this point we'd really like to know three things:

1 - What topics interest you

2 - If you or someone on your staff can lead a session on ......

3 - If you're planning to attend.

Bekka has put together a website page for your input.

Please take the time to give us that information soon so that we can arrange for #1 and #2, and frankly, if we don't hear about #3, there isn't much cause to worry about #1 and #2.

We look forward to your input.
