NEFLIN Children's Services Interest Group - Location: Starke (10/13/17) 

The Children’s Services Interest Group presents the opportunity to share and collaborate with colleagues from the northeast region.  We will share successes, great ideas, ways to handle challenges, what is new and exciting and more.  Join us as we work our way through 2017 learning from and supporting each other.

Location: Bradford County Public Library, Starke, FL

The morning session will include:
NEFLIN Rocks!:  Jana Fine (Youth Services Consultant, Florida Bureau of Library Development) recently sent out a call asking for, “Short videos showcasing the theme "Libraries Rock" through songs, crafts, booktalks or activities. For example, your video could feature a favorite tune, an activity teens enjoy, or a craft that kids love.”  These videos will be uploaded to share ideas for next year’s summer reading program.  Bring your best idea or ideas representing Libraries Rock.  We will make short (2- 5 minutes) videos and then make a group submission that will represent all the talented folks in NEFLIN. Video production and equipment will be supplied.

The afternoon will include:
Where do we go from here?  What does the future of the Children’s Interest Group look like? A new year is on the horizon.  Have your voice heard and be a part of this important conversation.
