SW Area Librarians Meeting on 4/13

Last Thursday April 13, the SW Area Librarians Group met in Mancos for their quarterly meeting. We had about 17 librarians present, even some ventured from Ridgway and Ouray to attend! There was great sharing of ideas and experiences with discussion and good pot luck food (though mainly it was desserts this time!) We covered topics such as summer reading, event collaboration, managing volunteers, benefits to small library employee, and library construction projects! Feel free to “talk” more about these ideas on this blog if you wish.

Thanks to Mancos Public Library for hosting this time. Minutes will be send out on the SW Listserv when available. Next meeting is in Telluride at the Wilkerson Public Library on July 20, 2006.

CLiC/SEALS Workshop

On April 27 – 28, CLiC and SEALS are holding a two-day conference in Canon City. It’s quite the event with over 20 sessions offered over the course of two days. Beth Filar Williams and Shelley Walchak from CLiC will be presenting on Facilitating, or “How to Run a Meeting”. Shelley will also do a session on “Social Software”. Please go to the CLiC website and link under Spring Workshops to Canon City for the registration form, a link to the sessions, and a dinner menu on Thursday when Jamie LaRue is speaking on Intellectual Freedom.
