Leaving annual early on Monday? Double-booked yet again and missing out on the President’s Program? Not in Chicago but trying to keep up with all of YALSA’s fabulous programs and sessions? Join us for a live blog of the 2009 President’s Program and Membership Meeting!
This year’s theme is Creativity Counts: Nurturing Teens’ Talents at Libraries Large & Small. The program will take place on Monday from 1:30 to 3:00 in McCormick Place West, room W-196a. Joining us in the afternoon’s panel will be Elise Cole, Teen Services Librarian at the Oakville Public Library, who has run the very successful Write2Xpress contest for teens. Also on the panel is Patrick Shaffner, Chicago’s outreach coordinator for the nonprofit writing workshop, 826, founded by Dave Eggers and friends.
To participate in the live blog, simply join in the viewer below any time after 1:30 (Central Time). You can also participate via twitter. If you’d like all of your tweets to be included in the session, leave your @ username below in comments, or get in touch with @mkeagle. If you’d rather tweet more selectively, use our hashtag, #YALSAprez, and only your tagged tweets will appear in the session window.
