See You Next Week!

The annual NH Library Association conference is being held today and tomorrow. The Library will be closed all day today so that the staff can attend the workshops most relevant to their duties, and, to allow for carpooling. A smaller number will also be attending on Friday, so the Library will be open. However, there will be no Kurious Kitty posts on both days.

Here is a sampling of the workshops being offered on Thursday:

Adventures in Facilities: "NH Library Directors talk about the challenges, adventures and successes in various facility projects from Geothermal, to building renovations to LEED Certifications."

Change Direction NH - with John Broderick: "Former NH Chief Justice John Broderick will discuss Change Direction New Hampshire, his family’s experience with mental illness, the common signs of mental health to be on the lookout for, and what librarians can do if they see customers/staff/family members showing the signs or have someone report to them he/she has those signs."

Digitization: "...in 2011 Boston Public Library’s Digital Services department embarked on a two-year, statewide digitization program in partnership with Digital Commonwealth (DC), an online portal and repository service for digital cultural heritage materials held by Massachusetts libraries, museums, historical societies, and archives."

The Essential Role of the Library Community in NH's Statewide Digital Equity Initiative.

Google Analytics.

Graphic Design and Branding for Libraries: "Learn how to create library promotional materials that look like they were designed by a graphic artist."

They Won't Even Know They're Learning (STEM and the Pre-Schooler): "How can we expand our collections and programs to encourage scientific and technological literacy for our youngest patrons?"
