MASL 2016

The 2016 MASL (Missouri Association of School Librarians) Conference was one of the very best I have been to in a long time.  The featured speakers were great...especially Jennifer LaGarde (aka Library Girl).  Of course I follow her on Twitter and read her blog regularly, but I had never heard her speak before.  In short, she was PHENOMENAL!  I still find myself thinking about her talk!

Fellow Liberty teacher-librarian Teresa Barnett and I presented a workshop entitled, Blending Your MakerSpace & Library Standards For Student Success.  Check it out if you are implementing a MakerSpace in your library or school.

I also met author Tim Green and won an autographed copy of his book.  Obviously, I had to get a pic with him:). Plus, I was thrilled to hear David Shannon's presentation on his life as an author.  What an amazing storyteller he is!  

Conferences are a great place to gather new ideas for programming and get a fresh new look at what is possible in your library. I am looking forward to bringing Battle of the Books to my library!
