On December 9 at the Walt Branch Library in Lincoln, from 9:30-3:30, Southeast Library System will bring you a workshop to help you begin planning your programming next summer. While lunch will be on your own, a long list of restaurants in the area will be available. And light refreshments will be provided as well! The agenda is below:
10-10:50 All Together Now: Great Books for Summer Reading in 2023 with Sally Snyder
Get a list of, and hear about, a large number of titles you can use next summer!
11-11:20 Nebraska Extension Update
Quickly find out about the programs Nebraska Extension is planning for this coming summer.
11:25-12:45 Lunch on your own (list of restaurants provided)
12:45-1:15 Sharing and Brainstorming for Ideas for Summer Programming.
Do you already have some ideas for next summer? If you will be using the CSLP slogan "All Together Now," how will you implement that and what sort of activities are you beginning to plan? If you will have a different (or no) theme, can you share a little bit about what that will look like?
1:25-2:15 Basics of Escape Room Design for Libraries with Jacquelyn Schranz
You don't have to be a master sleuth or escape artist to host an epic escape room event at your library. Learn the basics as well as some tips and tricks for writing and hosting an escape room, puzzle and prop design, and training staff members how to be "gamemasters."
2:25-3:15 What Do We Do With That Theme? with Denise Harders and Autumn Carlson
Are you wondering what activities to do and how to decorate for the 2023 Summer Reading theme? Join Autumn and Denise from the Central Plains Library System for three hands-on crafts and a bunch of ideas related to unity, friendship, and kindness.
