Kids Are Customers Too
I once again attended Kids Are Customers Too. I was not as pleased with the event as I had been in prior years. Previously, the event consisted of breakaway sessions that allowed the participant to select sessions of particular interest. This year everyone was kept together. We had a session on a Cold Storytime. Next was a session on healthy snacking for teens/kids. This was an interesting concept. The County Extension Office worked with the library to teach the concept of healthy snacking and its preparation in conjunction with an event such as gaming. I would like to see something similar happen with teens at the Leonard P. Snyder Memorial Library. Kate Riggs, winner of the Blue Crab Award, spoke on editing. The remainder of our time was spent with reps from Baker and Taylor as they introduced us to upcoming releases, the majority of them YA books.
