The inaugural North Texas Library PLN (NTxPLN) LibCamp, Summer(s)Cool, was held at Carroll Senior High School in August. Summer(s)Cool was a day-long, free professional development workshop planned and hosted by the librarians of the NTxPLN, a group of local high school librarians including Sarah Chase, Librarian at Carroll Senior High School and Candace Neal, former Librarian at Carroll High School.
The event was attended by more than 100 school librarians from North Texas, Houston and Austin. Participants were given the opportunity to suggest topics of interest and sessions were facilitated by the NTxPLN librarians or by workshop attendees with expertise in the sessions’ topics. The librarians of NTxPLN hope to make this an annual event.
