I returned home from Philadelphia last Saturday night, but did have some time to attend two programs before traveling. The first program was “In Order to Form a More Perfect Union: Library Access as an Emerging Constitutional Right” and was an interesting discussion of the First Amendment and making sure the public has due process in our library policies, specifically regarding behavior.
The second program was a discussion group titled “Welcome to the Board: Create a Dynamic Online Orientation for New Library Trustees Using Free Online Tools.” This was a good discussion and one I will be exploring with the Library Board of Trustees this year, as we continue to grapple with beneficial orientation of new board members.
Thank you for supporting professional development and my attendance at PLA! Conferences like this keep our library on the cutting edge of innovative library service that the Goffstown community deserves.
