SWON's 24th Annual Picture Book Read-In: Early Bird Special

 

 

 

Early Bird Special! Register now and get $5 off. Ends July 26th.

SWON's Picture Book Read-In is a program for collection development staff, children's librarians, teachers, and childcare workers, in short, anyone who selects and/or reads books for children. We have thousands of recent titles (usually from the last two years) loaned to us for this event from six leading public library systems. Each attendee receives a printed guide listing all of the books. 

The day includes time for selecting and binge-reading picture books, discussing possible story time options with your peers and two presentations.

Telling A People's Story: African-American Children's Illustrated Literature
This first-of-its-kind museum exhibition, featuring original art by African-American illustrators, looks at African-American cultural and historical identity through the lens of children's picture books. It is now a traveling panel exhibition made available for public schools, libraries, and universities and colleges. 

Jason Shaiman is the Curator of Exhibitions at the Miami University Art Museum in Oxford, Ohio. Prior to his arrival at MUAm in August 2010, he served as the Chief Curator of Exhibitions at the University of South Carolina’s McKissick Museum. Shaiman received his BA in Art History from the Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and an MA in Art History and a Degree in Museum Studies from the University of South Carolina. He has curated more than 40 exhibitions, with Telling A People's Story being his most important accomplishment.

PCI Webinar - RA for All: Ten Rules of Basic Reader's Advisory Service

 

 

 

Readers Advisory belongs in every library, no matter its budget. The implementation of this vital service is the responsibility of every staff member - from pages to directors, from those behind the scenes to the ones on the front lines. This program will remove the mystery behind providing great RA service. 

Using her “Ten Rules of Basic RA Service” as a guide, Becky Spratford will use your own love of your favorite books to show you how to help any patron find their next great read. It's not as hard as you think. But more importantly, you will learn why a staff that can harness the power of sharing a great read will become a stronger team and improve service to all patrons.

Can't attend on the date and time listed? Anyone who registers in advance for PCI Webinars will receive an archived copy of the presentation for later viewing. SWON provides PCI Webinars to our Supporting Members for free (and to Geographic Members and everyone else at a reduced price), so there's no reason not to register today

SWON Webinar - Fortnite in the Library

 

 

 

Looking for a way to bring popular programming to your tween patrons? Fortnite IRL (in real life) is a great way to bring youth into the library. The program, like the video game, is built around hidden objects that are designed to aid your players in being the last one standing. Emporia Public Library will share tips and details on how to get this popular video game off the screen and into your library!
