Library Camp

Summer makes me think of relaxed schedules, swimming, playing outside and . . . camp.  Last week, I attended my very first Library Camp.  It was awesome!  I got to connect with librarians and learn about the latest trends before the start of a new school year.  Library Camp began with a fantastic presentation by Ali Schilpp, the 2018 School Library Journal and Scholastic’s School Librarian of the Year.  We each received a LEGO Travel Buddy and Ali encouraged us to post our LEGO buddies’ exciting adventures at #LEGOTravelBuddy.  Those travel buddies have already covered a lot of territory!  She also challenged us to provide our own definition of a “librariCAN” at #librariCAN.  Her definition included “Companion, Advocate and Nerd.”

Stephanie Charlefour led a great discussion about the pros and cons of the multitude of databases out there.  We discussed how helpful it would be if there was a statewide database consortium. Caitlin Bennett shared her experience with genrefication, which is clearly a Herculean task, but with great results.  Then, we had a fun time with Chris Rose learning about all the new books coming out soon.  

My summer is now complete since I got to go to camp . . . Library Camp!  I can’t wait to go again next summer!
