Deb Logan’s session, ” Finding the Right Nook, Funding, and Implementation Plan”
Description: Thinking of adding a collection of eReaders to your library? Don’t know where to start? Join this practical, tip-filled journey that starts with a plan to involve district goals, teachers, students, administrators, parents and community members in putting together an LSTA Grant, policies and procedures, and ends with adding 30 classroom Nooks and 40 circulating library nooks with nearly 2,000 titles to our library. Barnes and Noble Community Relations Manager Stefanie Heinsen will answer questions.
Deb hopes attendees will be able to: develop a concept for a LSTA Grant, involve stakeholders in implementing new technologies, and make a plan to implement an ereader program.
