Homebound workshops in August - new content added!

Registration is open for two face-to-face NTLP workshops in August:

Books and More To Their Door!  Making Your Library More Inclusive
Date: Tuesday, August 16, 2011
Time: 9:30-4:00
Location: Haltom City Public Library

Date: Thursday, August 18, 2011
Time: 9:30-4:00
Location: Denton Public Library, South Branch

These workshops will feature a panel discussion from the directors and outreach staff from the three pilot homebound libraries, best practices for developing homebound outreach programs, and strategies for forming effective community partnerships, and much more.  

I am also very pleased to announce that Kathleen Walls from the Texas Talking Books program will be presenting with us as well.  Kathleen will share how libraries can promote this free service to eligible members of their communities, including how to become a demonstration site.  

So, whether you are thinking about developing a homebound delivery service, want to learn more about the Texas Talking Books program, or just have a passion for outreach to underserved individuals in your community, we hope to see you there!
