News on the School Library Camps front – we’ve now got 4 camps ready to go for the 14th June (London, Glasgow, Manchester & Leeds) with possibly a further one in Birmingham ready to launch soon. We’ve gotten all 4 sorted without the need for any sponsorship through free venues so that’s a bonus also! I wondered if you could do a post for me on the Library Camp blog, something along the lines of (though put it in your own voice if you prefer!);
“Exciting news for those interested in school libraries; a flurry of school library camps taking place up, down and across the country. On Saturday 14th June, there will be four, yes four, school library camps held simultaneously in different locations;
North West (Manchester); http://tinyurl.com/p7q48t9
Yorkshire (Leeds); http://tinyurl.com/q4vnted
Scotland (Glasgow); http://tinyurl.com/o89yux4
The hope is to link up all these different camps with tech to create a national school library conversation and share ideas across the land. So, if you’ve an interest in school library services, get yourself along to your nearest camp.”
The London event is a little more erm..‘rigid’ than a traditional library camp but that’s how they wanted it, it’s more a hybrid Lib TeachMeet but I figure attendees there can virtually sit-in on another session at another camp if they like.
I’m promoting through the School Lib Assoc and School Library Group too so hopefully we’ll get events ‘selling out’ soon J
Great news Darren and respect due to the other organisers.
