Pages VII - Edmonton

PAGES is a free conference about supporting readers through partnerships. Don't miss out on this exciting free event.

Date: October 15, 2010
Location: Stanley A. Milner Library, Edmonton

More than 200 people attended the first PAGES conference in 2008 to learn about services to readers and to meet with others who work with readers. 100% of them asked for another workshop to be organized, and here it is!

The 2010 workshop will feature keynote speakers Rachel van Riel, Director of Opening the Book, a British program for increasing reader engagement; and Ross Todd, Director of the Center for International Scholarship in School Libraries. Local experts with a broad range of experience in working with different kinds of readers will also make presentations on topics like the media's role in supporting readers, reaching non-mainstream readers, and new ways of looking at literacy.

This year's PAGES event will also include a more in-depth, follow-up Saturday session on October 16, Inspiration Into Action, in which Rachel van Riel will share strategies for implementing a reader-centred approach in libraries.

Please join us! Online registration is now available for both days.
