YSS is sponsoring a number of great sessions at WLA this fall and we want to pump you up! We will be sharing tidbits between now and Oct 26 when the conference starts at the Potowatomi Hotel and Conference Center. Registration is now open! Early bird registration runs through Oct. 7.

YSS is offering another exciting preconference following in the footsteps of its success with it's Early literacy/preschool services preconfernce in 2013 and Teen focus in 2014. This year, its all things school-age! But don't delay. Only 50 spots are open and our preconferences always fill.!

Stellar Service to School-Age Kids

1-5 pm Tuesday Oct 25
Registration fee $25 for WLA members/$50 non-members

The WLA Youth Services Section and WI Dept of Public Instruction invite you to join library staff serbving youth for an invigorating preconference. This small and large group event will offer scalable ideas related to programming, drop-in activities, technology and outreach for children in grades 2-5. TED-styl talks by WI library staff will address tried-and-true and shiny-and-new efforts for this age group. A passive programming gallery of ideas awaits you during the robust snack break. Best of all, network with library peers who are equally interested in reaching kids who are beyond early literacy but not yet a tween. Past participants in YSS + DPI preconferences have said it’s the best part of WLA!
