Check out library programs

Let libraries surprise you at this ICMA Annual Conference! Starting today at 12:45 p.m., three programs will discuss how libraries are making communities safer, supporting economic and workforce development and helping to build a stronger, more engaged community.

Can Your Library... will kick things off in Meeting Room C1 with Huey P. Long, city manager in Miami, OK; Dwight McInvaill, director, Georgetown County (S.C.) Library; Gerardo Mouet, executive director, Parsk, Recreation and Community Services in Santa Ana, CA; and Jill Nishi, deputy director, US Libraries Initiative, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The educational session (12:45-2)  will share how city and county managers have leveraged public libraries to deliver new and innovative services.

The Logging On in the Library continues the conversation tomorrow at 12:45 p.m.,  and Collaborating to Create a More Competitive Workforce wraps things up at 2 p.m. Tuesday in Rooms C3 anc C4. Learn from California library and workforce development agencies abou thow they developed and implemented replicable programs to improve job prospects for citizens and create a more competitive workforce for their communities.

Of course, you can also stop by the American Library Association booth (#731) with comments, questions or to enter a drawing to win a free registration for your librarian to the ALA 2011 Annual Conference in New Orleans.
