Wisconsin Web Conference Features Marge!

One of our own will be presenting at this year's Wild Wisconsin Winter Web Conference on January 15-16.

Marge Loch-Wouters of the La Crosse Public Library will be teaming up with Amy Koester to talk about "Unprogramming."

Do you find yourself spending hours planning school-age programs that are over in the blink of an eye?

Does your spending for teen program supplies make you blush? Are you ready to challenge yourself to be more efficient with your time, your staff’s time, and your department’s resources?

Discover “unprogramming,” a concept that helps you streamline planning and preparation while offering worthwhile literacy-centered programs, where kids help shape the direction of the program! This webinar will help you cook up strategies for unprogramming at your library with both school-age children and teens, and ideas for helping staff adapt to this new style. Prepare to create your personal menu of unprograms with a myriad of program ideas and resources.

The session will take place at 10:30 am on January 15. You can register here.

Another program that might be of interest to youth librarians is "Tech Services for Target Audiences" with Claire Moore of the Darien Library in Connecticut.  Claire will talk about her library's technology series with preschoolers, children and teens.  Her program will be at 10:30 am on January 16, and you can also register for that as well.

Check out all the sessions for the conference on the Nicolet Federated Library System's Facebook page.
