Do you program for school-age children? Have you spent time considering the balance between exciting, engaging programs and the amount of preparation that goes into the planning of said programs? If you're interested in this topic--how to offer the best child- and literacy-centered programs possible while efficiently and effectively utilizing your staff time and resources--then I hope you will join Marge Loch-Wouters of Tiny Tips for Library Fun and me at ALA Annual in Chicago as we talk about Unprogramming: Recipes for School-Age Program Success.
Marge, my partner in thoughtcrime, got the ball rolling on the initial Unprogramming conversation, and earlier this week she shared a gracious invitation for you--yes, YOU!--to join us as that conversation continues in Chicago. You have something valuable to add to this conversation.
We'll be facilitating our Conversation Starter on Unprogramming on Monday, July 1, 2013, from 1:30-2:15 p.m., in room S102d of the McCormick Place Convention Center. We hope you can join us and share your own thoughts on programming and program prep for kids.
