An APPLE a month keeps your library healthy:Apple graphic

Continuing Education experience for learning, networking, and bonding with other librarians

APPLE is a statewide program for new directors. The information is delivered through Webinars provided by system consultants and librarians from around Kansas. CKLS is making these morning Webinars available to all CKLS librarians through one-hour “watch parties”.

After lunch activities are designed to learn, network, and bond with fellow librarians.

First, we will answer questions about the content of the Webinar and review the homework. Only official APPLE students must do the homework. However, the homework is very practical and useful.

Next, we will move onto other topics not connected to the Webinar. System consultants will have some topics for discussion some afternoons. We will be announcing these topics in the future.

At all events there will be time for sharing, discussing issues and problems.

The system consultants already scheduled to participate in these events are Gail Santy, Patty Collins, Crystal Hutchinson, and Chris Rippel. Other system consultants will participate as they are available.

Morning refreshments will be provided.

Lunch will be on your own.

Agenda for each watch party: Everyone in the system is invited to attend.
All watch parties will be held in CKLS libraries.

The Signage Workshop is offered annually so CKLS libraries have an opportunity to create signs for their library. Gail Santy, Bev Cross, and Diedre Mapes will help you create a wonderful collection of signs for your library. Library signage is much like doing dishes or laundry – the job is never done! Shabby signs need to be replaced. Perhaps you have rearranged your library and need signs to reflect current locations or maybe it is time to update the color scheme in your library and want an inexpensive way to try on a new color.

At this workshop you will learn how to:

  • Quickly and easily create signs of all sizes with Microsoft Publisher.
  • Current best practices for do-it-yourself signage.

If this is your first time to attend the Signage Workshop, there is homework to be done. Use the Signage Homework document to determine your library signage needs. As always, if you have any questions, please contact Gail Santy at CKLS.

Registration limited to 10 participants

Registration Deadline: July 16, 2015. CKLS will purchase and provide supplies, you must register for this workshop.
