The officers of 2016-2017 are hard at work planning events for this next year. However, we want to hear from all of you!
What events do you want to see happen next year?
Here are the type of events we have on the cutting board:
Professional Development Workshops
These will be on campus events where we will invite guest speakers from around the area to present about a certain topic. Topics may include:
- How to plan library programs
- How to do community engagement
Video games are a great way for kids to gain social skills. But we can’t let them have all the fun! What about a night filled with console gaming and board games?
Happy Hour Q&A with Special Guests
How about an informal Q & A session with professionals in the field? This will be a series of Q&As that will span all types of youth librarians. Appetizers will be on us!
Cosplay for Comicon!
We really just like making things. We made LED bracelets this year, why not something else for next year! We will provide the supplies but you will provide the ideas. Afterwards, we can plan to attend Comicon together!
Halloween Themed Science Party
At first we wanted a Masquerade ball but then we decided it may be too awkward. How about a Halloween themed party at the HUB during Fall Quarter? We could try out some STEAM inspired activities like a puking pumpkin or growing Gummy Bears?
Something new that we want for this year is exposure to the awesome library systems around us. Many of us have probably explored KCLS and SPL but what about Sno-Isle or Kitsap? Field trip travel cost will be paid for. Since they will be day-long trips, coffee and snacks will be on us too!
