Friday, October 7: YSS Bus Tour to the Twin Cities

Join the Youth Services Section of WLA as we tour everal libraries in the Twin Cities area. This tours will have a special focus on early learning activities and environments and teen areas, but the tours will include all areas of the library. These tours will be of interest to children’s services and teen librarians, directors, Friends, and trustees who may be considering a new building project or remodeling project, and library school students. A description and itinerary is listed below.

The cost of the Twin Cities tour will be $25. Lunch will be on your own. Space is limited so register early. Confirmations will be sent.

Traveling by bus is an efficient and cost effective way to see these libraries, rather than visiting them independently. The staff at the libraries will be available for the tours and to answer questions. The bus trips help people avoid the hassles of traffic, parking, and getting around in unfamiliar cities. Visiting with other librarians is not only fun and but others often spot interesting things you might miss on your own. It’s a chance to see 4-5 different libraries in one day.

Registration deadline for the Twin Cities Bus Tour is September 28.
