Workshop: Making a Difference in a Life: Customer Service for Teens and Tweens

Thursday April 24, 2014

9:00 a.m. Doors Open

9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Workshop

11:30 a.m. Networking Opportunity

Bring a lunch, we’ll provide dessert & drink, and we’ll use the opportunity to discuss whatever you like concerning service strategies for teen/tweens!

Schenectady County Public Library
McChesney Room
99 Clinton Street 12305-2083
Tel: 518-388-4500
www.scpl.org


They may be Crocs, Uggs, or even Chuck Taylors - but we’re going to walk in the virtual moccasins of a teen and tween to better understand what they need from us. Through improvisation exercises and examples from real life, you will come away with a better understanding of:

  • Tween and teen development
  • Developing your library’s teen/tween service message and attitude
  • Welcoming and supporting diversity

Presenter: Terrie Gifford

Cost: $10 per person.

We will offer the program quarterly in January, April, July, and October (specific dates to be announced each year). The sessions will start at 6:30pm in the large meeting room at UHLS (28 Essex St. Albany, NY 12206).

2014 sessions:

Thursday, July 17

Please contact Heidi Fuge at UHLS (heidi@uhls.lib.ny.us or 437-9880 x221) to register for the next session.

Please contact Tim Burke at UHLS (tim.burke@uhls.lib.ny.us or 437-9880 x222) if you have any questions about the CORE program.

The goal of the CORE program is to create a common understanding of the roles, responsibilities, and core values of successful library trustees to ensure that each library is operating from a strong foundation. I am proud to report that we have 100% participation in the CORE training from our member libraries. Thank you for your support of this important initiative. Please make it a priority to ensure that all new library trustees have the opportunity to participate in this training program.



UHLS Youth Services Blog

Announcing a new UHLS youth services blog! We’re introducing a new way of communicating about youth services within UHLS. For member library staff serving kids, tweens, teens ,and families, this blog takes the place of the kids and teen wikis and adds to the communication tools of youthserv, kidbytes, and the UHLS website.

Here you'll find announcements of training and youth services meetings, YSAC minutes, and other news relevant to your work. We'll continue to use email too as we determine what array of communication tools works best for us.

You're invited and encouraged to reply to posts. As staff of a member library, you are also invited to create original posts. Just contact Mary Fellows (mary@uhls.lib.ny.us), who can add you as a contributor. Comments, questions, and suggestions for useful content enthusiastically encouraged!
