Laura Lee Kickstarter and LI Library Conference

Thank you to all who attended our annual Fran Romer Memorial Workshop!

This year's speaker, Laura Lee Gulledge, has a Kickstarter going to record an album for "Will & Whit: the Graphic Novel Musical" We encourage donations!

We will also be sponsoring the program  "Handling Difficult Topics with Young Adults" from 9 to 10 AM at the Long Island Library Conference this Thursday.

"We have all been put on the spot when a teen confesses something about their lives that we are not trained to handle.  It might be the death of a parent, their sexuality or thoughts of suicide.  Come learn how to handle those moments with grace while performing your duty as a librarian and a responsible adult.
