Feast on This: Re-Energize with Your Peers

Enjoy a casual, catered lunch with fellow Conference attendees. Avoid restaurant lines and the anxiety of figuring out how to spend the 1.5 hour break. De-stress with coloring, legos, puzzles, and other activities and watch some videos, including highlights of NJ libraries throughout 2016 as well as a short film, Librarians on Film: Miss Bula Banerjee. Look forward to lunch this year – we've figured it all out, so you don't have to!

There is No Box: Innovation and Your Whys, What Ifs and Why Nots?

In this interactive session, Joyce Valenza will explore notions of WHY: What drives innovation across libraryland and what inspires some of us to connect the dots others don't see? She'll share video interviews of innovative practitioners, who driven by vision, engage in transformative leadership to improve and enchant communities. Evoking Simon Sinek's work on purpose and Carol Dweck's research on growth mindset, Joyce will engage participants in finding their own WHYs and sharing their own transformative leadership strategies.

Meeting Workforce Development and Literacy Needs in the Library

Through a partnership with the NJ State Library, LWD provided grants to 18 libraries across NJ to create access points for workforce services and assist job seekers with the Career Connections digital platform.
