For our Staff Training Day on October 10, a group of us were invited to produce a presentation that could be used by branch staff as a program for parents. The topic: Social Networking Safety – things parents should know. Six of us individually prepared a few slides on portions of the topic identified by the group, and the chair’s daughter unified them with the background and colors.
The presentation was successful by all measures. We were up against a couple of high-interest guest speakers, yet the room was filled with staff who were interested in the topic. The Library Director requested a copy to present to the library board, and this morning we will be repeating the presentation at the Youth Services meeting. Go Team!
I’d like to work on tightening it up some more, and creating a framework like that used by the Hibbing Public Library for its computer classes. That way, branch staff would have a complete package, including setup requirements, handouts, and an evaluation form.
