Event description

Description

Presented by Library Journal and School Library Journal, the 2018 Public Library Think Tank will convene public library leaders and directors, youth services and young adult librarians, along with other leading thinkers on the role of youth services, literacy, and learning trends. This two-day event will focus on the power of youth services—from tots to teens—to inform healthy communities, help kids become readers and learners, and to help them develop the skills that will serve them well throughout their lives.

Intimately connected to community needs, youth services departments, large and small, form a dynamic and increasingly relevant force that continues to transform the impact of public libraries. Think Tank participants will share strategies on programming, management, community engagement, and getting the word out.

Outcomes:
Attendees will
learn about innovative programs and services from a series of insightful presentations and collaborative sessions, gain insight into superb youth services initiatives and their impact, and take home ideas on how to think strategically about leading with youth services to enhance library services. Attendees will leave with practical, applicable strategies with which to make a lasting impact in their libraries and library systems.

Special group pricing available. Directors are encouraged to attend with their team or send a group for a unique team building experience. Contact us for group rates.

There will also be an exciting and optional Thursday tour to points of interest. More details to follow but mark your calendar.

More information about the program and presenters will be available soon but don’t wait, register today! We’ll update you with program announcements as information becomes available.

The participants at the Public Library Think Tank are those taking leadership in creating strong and effective programs and libraries, and envisioning the future vitality of libraries to best serve our communities. This includes but is not necessarily limited to: public library children’s librarians, public library teen services librarians, school librarians in close collaboration with public libraries, branch managers, and public library directors.
