11:00 am- 12:00 pm
Sponsored by OKSL
Pleasure reading promotion is one of the most important parts of our roles as school librarians, and a critical component of overall student achievement. In this session, a panel of elementary and secondary librarians share 101 ways they have promoted reading in their school libraries. A mixture of rookie and seasoned librarians who serve a wide variety of students, the members of this panel are innovative in the ways they meet their students' reading needs. Hear about lunchtime book clubs and Sequoyah Book Award promotion, creative reading displays and visiting authors, Read-Around Events and guest readers among dozens of other creative but practical ideas to foster a love of reading in every student. This session will be rapid-fire style, but don't worry: participants will receive Do-it-Yourself resources for all of the awesome ideas we share.
Participants in this session will be able to implement in their libraries a variety of innovative programs that promote and celebrate reading for pleasure.
