SSD Safety Conference

During this time of transitions and challenges, empathy for others and ourselves is even more important than ever. Social worker Jessica Price has been incorporating empathy awareness into her elementary guidance plan for years. In doing so, she began to realize how much of what she was working on with young people in regards to empathy was relevant for all ages. Learning to embrace empathy and share our stories in a way that others can connect to is a lifelong objective. With so many new obstacles in our way to connect with others in spite of social distancing, this hour will be focused on reconnection during COVID. We can show kindness amidst the masks, stress, and frustrations that we are facing today.

This conference is open to everyone, so feel free to spread the word.

Members can register here.

Non-members can email sclshr@suffolknet.org for the registration link.

 

YASD Make & Take Programs

Please join us with fellow YA programmers to discuss Make & Take Programs, what works, what isn’t and how to implement it with community service.  Guest librarians from other states will be joining in the discussion to share their successes and not so successful kits.

Suffolk Library Marketing Award

The SLMA Award During COVID

The SLMA Award will be awarded in 2020. Don’t hesitate to apply.

The Suffolk Library Marketing Award recognizes the Best Public Relations
Marketing Campaign by a Public or Academic Library in Suffolk County, a
commission of the Public Relations and Marketing Committee of the Reference
and Adult Services Division of the Suffolk County Library Association,
a Regional Chapter of the New York Library Association.

 We want to hear about the marketing and publicity campaigns libraries engaged in pre-pandemic and during the lock down. We suspect that Suffolk libraries showed amazing creativity during the lock down and reopening of their buildings. Let us know what you did!

The normal deadline for the award was 9/15/20, but as we will not be structured by the date of the SCLA Dinner, as usual, the deadline has been extended until 10/15/20. The award ceremony will take place virtually at the December 1st RASD Board Meeting.
