Safe Spaces & Teen Services Workshops!

We're lucky to have library systems in our state that sponsor free and minimal cost professional development opportunities. Here's one such program coming up September 14, 2017 on Safe Spaces and Teen Services to be held at the Eau Claire Indoor Sports Center, 3456 Craig Road in Eau Claire.

Workshop Schedule:

Safe Spaces Training, 9-11 am with Christopher Jorgenson (Women’s and LGBTQIA+ Center, UWEC): The basics on creating a safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment for all, regardless of sexual orientation and/or gender identity/expression.

Teen Services Workshop, 11:15-3:30 with Heather Booth (teen librarian, author, contributor to Teen Librarian Toolbox): Learn about teen brain development, and how that impacts our interactions with teens in readers advisory and programming contexts. There will be time for exchanging ideas and questions, and a focus on low-cost, low-time solutions.

(Don't worry, we'll break for lunch from 12:30-1:30. Lunch can be on your own or is available on site for $10)
Register for one workshop or both workshops; both will be fabulous!

Register by September 8: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSejipxVVhb5CWMN_JupgD592QsVD1gYKAE0jtR7NaqJJXQEww/viewform.
