Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

The Very Happy UnConference is aimed at anyone with an interest in promoting reading for pleasure to children and young people, but as it’s an unconference YOU set the agenda! Suggested discussions include:

  • Story times and picture books – share your skills and pick up new ones.
  • Chatterbooks and YA reading groups – hints and tips for engaging with children and their families.
  • Lego Clubs – Why and how to build a club in your library
  • Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Awards – there will be several past and present judges available on the day to answer questions and facilitate a discussion about the CKG judging process.
  • Authors discussing their new work and love of libraries
  • Members of the CILIP YLG SW Committee will be available to talk to all day – find out how you can get involved

But please start suggesting your ideas for discussion topics that you'd like to lead. It’s the participant’s ideas that make an unconference, so don't be afraid! No topic is too small, or too big! You can submit your discussion suggestions via twitter using #UnConferenceSW or emailing Rosey_Crow@bathnes.gov.uk

The event is free, but we ask that you please bring a hand made name badge and a cake for tea break - get your creativity flowing before the day and impress your fellow book lovers to be in with a chance of winning a prize!
