With all these unanswered questions, and if you are a planner like me, it can be overwhelming to be on this island.
This is why I am so thankful for my tribe of amazing school librarians. I am thankful that OELMA is still able to offer virtual PD, as it is even more valuable now than ever. I also am thankful for the two OELMA Town Hall meetings we have hosted. Shout out to Ashley Aldrich and Susan Yutzey for getting this idea off the ground!
The Town Hall meetings we have are all about talking, throwing ideas out there, answering burning questions, and seeing how other librarians across the state are handling this pandemic and sharing ideas on what they do in their libraries in general. There isn’t really a format but I have personally gained so much information from these meetings.
With almost 200 librarians in total attending, there have been so many great ideas and resources that have been shared.
All of the Town Hall meetings have been recorded and the videos and chats have been posted in the OELMA Schoology, so if you missed one, you can watch it anytime.
Our next Town Hall meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, June 17 at 10:00 AM. We hope you can join us!
