Northwest Central invites you to check out some of the upcoming
continuing education webinars and events happening this October!

*FREE!* *10/23/13** Mission and Leadership: Work Motivation That Strikes a

Most organizations have a formalized mission statement. Too often it is
merely posted on a wall in the conference room. Often, employees grow
cynical and state that the organization’s mission statement is just that:
an empty statement. However, other organizations follow a structured
process that allows their managers to lead with integrity while using the
core principles of mission-driven organizations. In this extremely
practical presentation, that Dr. Eyal Ronen has never shared in the past,
he will describe the practical steps to creating a clear mission, vision,
and values for the organization. He will also describe the 4 things every
leader must do in order to be effective in accomplishing his or her, and
the organization’s mission.


*FREE! **10/24/13 Early STEM Learning in Library Programs for Young

*Growing Young Minds: How Museums and Libraries Create Lifelong Learners*,
a report released by the Institute of Museum and Library Services in June
2013, identifies *10 Key Ways* that libraries can improve early learning
outcomes, increase school readiness, and help all children, especially
those most at risk, read and succeed at grade three. The report is a call
to fully use libraries and museums to close knowledge and opportunity gaps
and give all children a strong start in learning. The more preschool
children know about early literacy, math, science, and technology, and the
more words they have to describe what they have seen and experienced, the
better prepared they will be for reading and for educational success. Our
nation is committed to early learning as a national priority essential to
our economic and civic future. Libraries have a significant role in
providing early learning experiences that build a child’s brain, fuel a
love of learning, and contribute to success in school and life. Join
Christine McNew, independent library consultant and children's services
expert, for this engaging and essential Webinar series, which will cover
early literacy program best practices, ideas for incorporating STEM
learning into early literacy programs, and the basics of early literacy
apps and iPads in the children's department.*

*FREE!* *10/29/13 Notorious Crimes of Central

Makerspaces with library customers and the community and feedback from
users. Libraries are a much needed and often used third space, which are
ideal for community Makerspaces to collaborate and encourage creativity
among all users. There will be gadgets, hands-on demos and group discussion
on the nuts & bolts necessary for Makerspace in the library as well as what
products should be found in successful Makerspaces. Gordon Wyant will share
