Time to Register for 2012 WAPL Conference in Stevens Point

Happy Monday!  It is time to register for the 2012 WAPL Conference in Stevens Point.  Here is a sample of some of the exciting sessions that will be presented over the course of the conference.   

Bestselling Romantic Suspense Author Karen Rose
The WLA READ Section is proud to present RITA Award-Winning Author Karen Rose! She will be making an appearance via Skype to talk about her popular novels and genre and the importance of public libraries in promoting her work. If you are a fan of romantic suspense novels, or just want to learn more about this exciting genre, please come!

Notable Books Marathon 2012
The Notable Books Marathon 2012 features librarians from all over Wisconsin talking about their favorite book genres. This year, we have a wide variety of genres to cover, including Romance, Political Thrillers, Humor, Scandinavian Mysteries, and Zombie Fiction. It should be an exciting and fun discussion for all who attend!

Tough Talks in Tough Times: What Librarians Need to Know to Communicate Change, Motivate Employees & Stay Sane
Funding cuts. Branches closing. Service reductions. Employee layoffs. These are issues that weigh heavily on the minds of librarians. They cause you to lose sleep, age more quickly, and feel helpless. This isn’t what you signed up for when you chose your career in library science. But these are issues you face, especially in this economy. Tough Talks in Tough Times addresses the most challenging part of your job: communicating bad news about change, motivating employees, and keeping your sanity. In this session, you will learn a 5 step process (the CHECK® system) to handle difficult discussions with integrity and respect. It’s a system that works at the library as well as
in your personal life
