Summer Reading Webinar

After downing some delicious chocolates and hopefully getting some romantic gift from my husband, I'm planning on attending a cool-looking webinar from WebJunction on Summer Reading Programs on February 15th from the comfort of my desk: Library Reading Incentive Programs for Summer and Beyond:
In this showcase of reading initiatives, presenters will share how they plan, promote, and carry out successful summer reading programs, and will discuss year-round efforts that encourage and support lifelong readership in the community. Panelist Melanie A. Lyttle, Madison Public Library (OH), will describe her library's use of social media to their program. Carol Evrard and Jenny Sitzman of Indiana's Spencer County Public Library will speak about their summer reading program; and Janet Ingraham Dwyer, State Library of Ohio, will talk about Choose to Read Ohio, a statewide initiative that encour! ages Ohioans of all ages to read and enjoy books together.
