2015 Youth Service Fall Workshop
Contact Person: Patty Collins, CKLS Youth Services Consultant
Light refreshments will be served at no charge. Lunch is on your own.
Looking to put a little “Wow” into your program? Whether this is your first or your 81st storytime, you might need some inspiration and fresh ideas to make your story program exciting for the children and for you.
Miss Patty will share some tricks to engage little people, explore ways to offer early literacy activities in your library, and show ways to get your little ones movin’ and groovin’.
The afternoon will highlight the talents of CKLS librarians who have volunteered to show some of their best Storytime material. Plan to leave with a bag of awesome freebies and brand new children’s books from the free book giveaway.
Please bring a favorite craft or activity (with instructions) to display at the workshop.
The list of materials to bring to the workshop will be sent through the CKLS Googlegroup.

APPLE Watch Party and Discussion- Ongoing
An APPLE a month keeps your library healthy:
Continuing Education experience for learning, networking, and bonding with other librarians
APPLE is a statewide program for new directors. The information is delivered through Webinars provided by system consultants and librarians from around Kansas. CKLS is making these morning Webinars available to all CKLS librarians through one-hour “watch parties”.
After lunch activities are designed to learn, network, and bond with fellow librarians.
First, we will answer questions about the content of the Webinar and review the homework. Only official APPLE students must do the homework. However, the homework is very practical and useful.
Next, we will move onto other topics not connected to the Webinar. System consultants will have some topics for discussion some afternoons. We will be announcing these topics in the future.
At all events there will be time for sharing, discussing issues and problems.
The system consultants already scheduled to participate in these events are Gail Santy, Patty Collins, Crystal Hutchinson, and Chris Rippel. Other system consultants will participate as they are available.
Morning refreshments will be provided.
Lunch will be on your own.
