RA for All Road Show Visits the Missouri Library Association Conference

Click here for the conference site

For the next two days I am in Springfield Missouri for the Missouri Library Association Conference. You can click here for the full schedule.

My appearance is sponsored by LibraryReads. One of LibraryReads' current priorities is to fund RA training at state library association conferences. The goal is to get more basic RA training into as many states as possible to train those who are at the state conferences and have them bring it back to their staff.

I have been appearing at state and regional library conferences for years, so I know the drill. I am glad that LibraryReads is making it possible for me to be here. You can click here for access to all of my programs via the conference website

I begin with a half-day preconference this morning from 9am-12pm. 

  • 9-10:30: RA for All: Flip the Script and Think Like a Reader [Slides]
  • 10:45-Noon: Booktalk Your Way to the Friendliest Library in Town [Slides]
After a lunch break, I will be an attendee at this LibraryReads and NoveList joint program.

Then tomorrow:

  • 9am-10:45am: Actively Anti-Racist Service to Leisure Readers w/ discussion time included. [Slides]
  • 11-11:45: Horror RA: Hew to Help Your Scariest Patrons [Slides] with my HWA Library Committee Co-Chair, Konrad Stump and NoveList Horror expert, Yaika Sabat.
Speaking of NoveList, at the end of the Booktalking and Anti-Racist programs there is a teaser slide from NoveList about a BRAND NEW learning opportunity that  I will be doing for them with Robin Bradford. Both Robin and I are very excited about being able to bring our training to more people in a new way. 

Any of you can see the teaser but the full details will be coming very soon. We can't wait to share it with you, but first, I will be seeing some of you here in Springfield, MO.
