CYPD Recap

Just came back from another fabulous CYPD Conference this weekend!  This year was a very different conference experience for me because I was fortunate enough to serve on the CYPD board.  For the past several months, I’ve had the privilege of working with some fabulous people to help put together an amazing event.  And I can’t wait to do it again next year!

But back to this year’s conference.  With a theme of #NOWTRENDING, librarians and library support staff from across Indiana came together for two days of great sessions all about working kids and teens.  From learning how to be a library rock star to programs about teaching animation techniques to kids, there was something for everyone.

We also had some fabulous speakers.  Like Adam Gidwitz!

I was fangirling too much to remember most of his speech, but it was AWESOME!

And David Slonim!

I enjoyed all of the sessions I attended.  Every year I am surprised and absolutely amazed at what other libraries in Indiana are doing.  I always come away with new ideas.

And my staff is always terrified when I come back because those new ideas mean changes.

Eh, they’ve survived thus far.
