Dear Directors: I was asked to share this information with you. This conference is in the other Frisco!  The dim sum probably isn’t so good, but the BBQ may be great. Actually, I have heard good things about this conference...

Subject: Please share Association for Rural and Small Libraries Conference information

Hello State Library representative.  Please consider sharing the following information with your libraries.  And let me know if you have questions.  Thanks, Steve Seale, ARSL 2011 Conference Chair, 469/235-8032.

Registration continues for the Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL) 2011 Conference to be held September 8-11, in Frisco, Texas.

For conference information and registration, go to http://www.arsl.info/annual-conference-awards-calendar/frisco-conference-2011/.

The conference will bring together representatives from libraries across the nation to share resources and build a spirit of collaboration.  The mission of ARSL, an affiliate of the American Library Association, is to provide a network of people and materials to support rural and small library staff, volunteers and trustees to integrate the library thoroughly with the life and work of the community it serves.  Learn more at www.arsl.info <http://www.arsl.info/> .

Special session speakers (all terrific!) will include Linda Braun, a nationally-known library technology consultant; Gene Ambaum and Bill Barnes, creators of wildly popular Unshelved, the world’s only library comic strip (www.unshelved.com <http://www.unshelved.com/> ); and Joe Bob Briggs, TV personality, drive-in movie critic, author and advocate of intellectual freedom (www.joebobbriggs.com <http://www.joebobbriggs.com/> ).

Examples of workshops (there are many more) include Inside Tips for Grant Writing; Homework 411 for Teens; Cloud Computing; Programming for All Ages; Endowment Building; Recycling Books for Fun, Fashion & Profit; Trustee/Board Development; Summer Reading Programs; Developing Community Partnerships; Library Signage; Engaging Volunteers; Getting Non-Reading Teens Involved in YA Lit; Saks Services on a Dollar General Budget; Storytelling Programs for All Ages; Storytime Ideas; Troubleshooting Technology;  and Adult Programs on a $0 Budget.
