APPLE Watch Party and Discussion- Ongoing
An APPLE a month keeps your library healthy:
Continuing Education experience for learning, networking, and bonding with other librarians
APPLE is a statewide program for new directors. The information is delivered through Webinars provided by system consultants and librarians from around Kansas. CKLS is making these morning Webinars available to all CKLS librarians through one-hour “watch parties”.
After lunch activities are designed to learn, network, and bond with fellow librarians.
First, we will answer questions about the content of the Webinar and review the homework. Only official APPLE students must do the homework. However, the homework is very practical and useful.
Next, we will move onto other topics not connected to the Webinar. System consultants will have some topics for discussion some afternoons. We will be announcing these topics in the future.
At all events there will be time for sharing, discussing issues and problems.
The system consultants already scheduled to participate in these events are Gail Santy, Patty Collins, Crystal Hutchinson, and Chris Rippel. Other system consultants will participate as they are available.
Morning refreshments will be provided.
Lunch will be on your own.

The 2016 CKLS System Plan contains two incentive grants.
- New Trustee Recruiting and Orientation Information
- Annual Library Director Evaluation
Both requirements improve libraries by providing frameworks for stepping back and thinking about and discussing what trustees and library directors need to know and should be doing. Such activities provide direction for trustees and directors. This workshop prepares library boards and directors to meet this requirement during 2016. We will provide and discuss examples you can use.
