Posted on behalf of the Oregon Association of School Libraries. Their sessions look particularly good this year, I've highlighted several I think might also be beneficial for youth services librarians at public libraries. Don't forget that OYAN<http://www.olaweb.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=289> and CSD members<http://www.olaweb.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=129> may apply for scholarships to attend professional conferences related to library youth services!


Its time to register <https://sites.google.com/a/oasl.olaweb.org/oasl2013/registration> for the OASL 2013 Fall Conference<https://sites.google.com/a/oasl.olaweb.org/oasl2013/registration> to be held at Jesuit High School in Portland, Oregon on October 11-12, 2013. When registering for the 2-day conference you will have the opportunity to select your Friday workshops. These session are longer than the Saturday concurrent sessions and provide opportunities for hands-on experiences and more in-depth learning. Here are some highlights of this year’s Friday workshops:

Friday morning 1 ½ hr workshops:

Amy Page is presenting “Student-created eBooks made w/ iPad” and then participants will learn how to add these to your Library catalog.

A.S. King and hear her thoughts about being an author, community read programs and the importance of librarians in the digital age.

With all these fabulous sessions its going to be hard to choose.  Here’s an idea:  Invite a classroom teacher or tech coordinator to attend the OASL conference with you -- each attend different sessions - share what you learn with each other - and learn twice as much!
