Georgia 21st Century Library Speaker Series

This invitation comes from Pat Carterette, Director of Continuing Education for the Georgia Public Library Service. If you would like to attend the free workshop, email by August 20.
The Georgia Public Library Service is pleased to announce the first program in the new Georgia 21st Century Library Speaker Series. You, your staff and your trustees (and library science students) are cordially invited to attend!

Start with...Why?
...will be presented by nationally known consultants (did I mention fun and engaging?) George Needham and Joan Frye Williams in Albany, Ga on August 24th. George and Joan will reveal their perspectives on various aspects of 21st century libraries and engage us in discussions about best practices, new technologies and innovative services. Two continuing education contact hours will be awarded.

The workshop will be held at the Albany-Dougherty County Government Center on Tuesday, August 24 from 1:30-3:30 pm. Library staff and trustees from all types of libraries are invited to attend these insightful, thought-provoking and entertaining presentations. The workshops are free but registration is required as attendance is limited.

Even if you've heard them before, I hope you and your staff and/or trustees are able to take advantage of this unique opportunity to interact with library strategist George Needham and library futurist/innovator Joan Frye Williams! I know transportation and staffing issues are just a few challenges you may face in sending staff to one of these workshops. But I hope you'll find a way to "make it work!"
