CISD Librarians Learning to Engage Readers

Librarians ConfSeveral of the Carroll ISD librarians attended the Texas Library Association Annual Conference in Austin during the spring.  The theme of this year’s conference was “Sync Up!”

EIS Librarian, Lucy Drenka, and DIS Librarian, Suzie Green, attended a session entitled, “Dan vs. Dan:  Winning Author Visits.”  They learned how to use authors Dan Gutman and Dan Yaccarino’s  made-up online feud to create engaging library visits, social media buzz and interest in their books.

CHS Librarian, Candace Neal, member of the Maverick Reading Committee, presented at a session entitled, “Maverick Con:  Stay in Front of the Graphic Novel Wave.” She and her fellow presenters covered tips for librarians to keep their graphic novel collection current and engaging for student use.
