Join your library colleagues for a  day of sharing and brainstorming.  We know that often the best ideas you learn at a workshop are not from the presenter, but from the conversation with your table mates or while standing in line for lunch.  Here is your chance to discuss, plan, and play as your finalize the details for your summer program.   
 
Each participant should bring a craft and/or a game to demonstrate.   Bring suggestions of favorite past programs, presenters, and great reads.  
 
Plan to leave with a list of program ideas and instructions to use this summer and beyond.

“I took my time, running my fingers along the spines of books, stopping to pull a title from the shelf and inspect it. A sense of well-being flowed through me as I circled the ground floor. It was better than meditation or a new pair of shoes- or even chocolate. My life was a disaster, but there were still books. Lots and lots of books. A refuge. A solace. Each one offering the possibility of a new beginning.” ― Beth Pattillo, Jane Austen Ruined My Life
