ISLMA Conference 2013

I'll be packing my bags tonight to head to the ISLMA Annual Conference in Springfield. I am really looking forward to all the fantastic sessions and a chance to connect with many of my school library colleagues around the state.

ISLMA launched a new online scheduling website and app this year. It was great to go through all the sessions and create a tentative schedule. Although for some time slots, I chose several options and it will be difficult to pick just one.

After school ends, I'll be heading to Springfield. I just checked Twitter and searched the conference hashtag, #ISLMA13, to see what is already happening. Hope to see many of you at conference for a few days of great professional development and networking!

Upcoming TL Virtual Cafe: Flip It Good

The next TL Virtual Cafe webinar will take place Monday, October 7 at 7 pm. The topic is one that I has been on my mind lately, the idea of flipping the library. 

Novice yet earnest flipper Marie Slim (Teacher Librarian and Spanish Teacher) will share tips, tricks, hashtags, mentors, pitfalls and successes. Flipping is made for the library - one of you and 2000 who need you!
