TEDX YOUR LIBRARY
Pam Saliba, Andrea Cecchetto
Tuesday, March 7| 1 - 2PM ET
Have you ever thought about hosting a TEDx event at your library? TED, a globally recognized brand that needs no introduction, known for inspirational (and viral) videos on the topics of technology, entertainment, and design, introduced the TEDx program in the spirit of ideas worth spreading.
TEDx highlights your local inspirational thinkers. They are self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience.
Libraries have always spread ideas and a TEDx Library Event is the next step in that evolution. Learn how to plan a TEDx event at your library, and discover the many benefits.
PROGRAMMING FOR VULNERABLE POPULATIONS: A GUIDE TO SERVING YOUR COMMUNITY
Tuesday, March 28| 1:30 - 2:30 PM ET
Our communities are diverse, not only with culture, but with abilities. Is your library properly serving your residents if programming opportunities don’t reflect the whole community? People with special needs and mental health issues make up a segment of your population, but they are often forgotten when it comes to program development. I’m here to explain that programming for these groups doesn’t need to be daunting or difficult. This workshop will provide you with steps library staff can use to outreach and support at-risk populations in your area.
THEFT IN LIBRARIES: FACING THE HIDDEN TRUTH
Tuesday, April 4| 1 - 2 PM ET
Synthesis of findings presented at the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) World Library and Information Congress (WLIC) 2016 session of the same name, and presentation of some of the key issues in this progressing field. This popular IFLA session focused on highlighting the importance of recording thefts internationally with the aim to de-stigmatise the reporting of thefts (something which still many libraries will not make publicly aware). It also looked at methods of raising public awareness towards provenance of cultural heritage items, and to continuing to build bridges between the curatorial and commercial arms of the cultural heritage profession. Daryl will also report on the developing work between IFLA the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers (ILAB).
BOOK CLUB PICKS THAT WILL KEEP THEM TALKING!
The Dewey Divas and Dudes
Thursday, April 13| 12 - 1 PM ET FREE
Book clubs create considerable engagement between the public and libraries — but reading and recommending the “usual suspects” can lose its appeal over time. Join this session to receive suggestions about new books that will spark discussion and the exchange of ideas. We’ll be looking at novels from Canada and around the world, and also a selection of nonfiction — many of the books in paperback, but also a few outstanding hardcover contenders that are hot off the press.
