2014 Annual Conference

Inspiring Libraries Build Communities

October 22 – 24, 2014, at the Ruidoso Convention Center & Inn of the Mountain Gods  for the 2014 NMLA Annual Conference.

Inspiring Libraries Build Communities

Libraries and community organizations are collaborating to bring diverse programs and services to the community, from STEM to READ to the Maker Spaces program!  It’s been awesome to bring these programs into our libraries and inspire our communities to get involved, learn, be creative, and have fun! How does your library inspire your community? How can we continue to keep building our libraries for our communities?

Pre-Conference Workshop

Join Las Cruces Public School Librarians and learn how to integrate technology with your community of learners.  This 3 hour pre-conference will include hand on practice in creating QR codes, Infographics, and interactive posters such as Thinglink to use with your library community.  The tools presented in this workshop can be used to promote your library, the services your library provides, and alternatives for the traditional research report.  In addition, tools will be provided that will help you collaborate with teachers as they continue to implement Common Core State Standards.  Bring your own laptop!
