30-Minute Tuesday: Apps for All (webinar)
Tuesday, February 6; 10 am
Presented by: Jay Gerlach, Library Service Associate
Brown County Library; Green Bay, WI
Over 2 million apps exist. Thinking about this is overwhelming, especially when deciding which apps would be most useful in the library. In this webinar, learn an overview of several applications and websites with a focus on their usefulness in a library setting. From online quiz apps like FlipQuiz and Kahoot, to the more well-known programs like Google Earth and Google Translate, we’ll take a look at a little bit of everything. A few websites, including Scratch (a site to teach coding) and The Wayback Machine (the Internet Archive) will be added for good measure. Bring along a smart device, as we’ll end the presentation with a live demonstration of Kahoot.

Librarians Rock at Summer Planning
Friday, February 23, 9am - 3pm
Lester Public Library: 1001 Adams Street, Two Rivers
9 am – 9:30 : Registration and Refreshments
9:30 am – 12 pm: Make Mine Music – Notes Towards Summer Bliss
While the summer library program may be a youth librarian’s inevitable lot, there’s no reason it can’t be fun for both the kids AND staff! We’ll look at easy ways to incorporate music, chants, music making and rhythm into your SLP. We’ll also take a peek at how to incorporate more discovery and learning into your SLP to engage kids and how to avoid stress! We’ll have time to both brainstorm and work on a music-themed SLP event or program while you have colleagues to work with and bounce ideas off of. Hands-on music fun and eye-popping info ahead!
Marge Lock Wouters currently works as a consultant and educator after a 40 year career working full-time as a children’s librarian and manager. While she can’t sing or play a lick, like all good library staff, she knows how to tap into information to make her seem like she knows things! She is the President of the WI Library Association and says she became the librarian she is today because of her membership and participation in WLA.
