Announcing the second annual Oregon Afterschool Conference!
The Conference will be held at Crossler Middle School in Salem on
November 6, 2010.  We have the wonderful Shelley Lucas presenting as
keynote and a great line up of speakers!  Please see our full conference
brochure at
Libraries play a unique role in afterschool—afterschool is the common
term for organized programs, activities or childcare provided for youth
in K-12th Grade. Library youth services staff are afterschool providers,
and are resources for other afterschool providers looking for materials
on child development, behavior management, planning activities, etc. 
You are an afterschool provider if you conduct summer reading programs,
facilitate book clubs for kids, host youth gaming events, or run a teen
advisory council!  As an afterschool provider you have access to a wider
range of professional development opportunities like the Oregon
Afterschool Conference.
Here are a few sessions at the Oregon Afterschool School Conference
that may be of particular interest to children’s and teen librarians:

you can create intentional opportunities for youth to become positively
Respectable Accommodations—Presenter: Lorine Day-Reynolds
Making your afterschool program accessible to children with
disabilities will require creative and responsive accommodations. This

Oregon After School for Kidsis a collaboration of public and private
organizations and community members which seek to address common issues
and concerns across all out-of-school time services - child care,
recreation, education and youth development. Our goal is that all Oregon
children, youth and families will have access to quality out-of-school
time options within their communities. All services will enhance
children's positive development, and future opportunities while keeping
them safe from harm. All programs, services and activities will be of
high quality and contribute to strong communities and schools.
