Want to know more about kindergarten assessment and early learning
Hubs?  OLA CSD has got it for you.  Want to participate in selecting a
Mock Sibert or Mock Caldecott?  OLA CSD had got that for you, too.  Want
to watch performers in order to select the best for your library?  OLA
CSD comes through again.  Here are the many dates and locations of all
this activity.
Showcase of Performers.  A chance to see a variety of performers
present 5 minutes of their best entertainment.   Salem Public Library,
Saturday, September 27, 9-4.  You can register here.

CSD Fall Workshop.  Join your peers and cohorts for a day of learning
and sharing.  Speakers will address:
·		 Kindergarten assessment (KRA) so we can best design
storytimes in order to prepare children for kindergarten.  Michelle
Munro from the Ready2Learn Project will talk not only about KRA but also
about how library programs in eastern Oregon are benefitting from the
information they’ve learned. 
·		 Early Learning Hubs.  What are they?  How do we fit in?
 What do all their acronyms mean?  Representatives from the Central
Oregon Early Learning Hub will explain and inform.
·		 Passive programming.  Especially useful for libraries
with minimal staffing, this will be an open discussion of ways to
provide programs with little preparation and staff involvement.
·		 Update on Ready to Read and other State Library
·		 Update on libraries that are participating in early
literacy projects funded by the Oregon Department of Education’s Early
Literacy Grants.  
·		 Silent auction!  Bring your treasures to auction, and
bring your wallets to buy other treasures.  Proceeds go to the CSD
Scholarship Fund.
The location will be the Downtown Bend Library in Bend, from 10-3:30. 
You can register here.

Mock Sibert Workshop.  December 13, at Wilsonville Public Library. 
Children’s nonfiction is abundant and amazing.  Come join the discussion
on which titles are the best of the year.  Save the date for now.  More
details on registration, titles, time and speakers coming soon.
Mock Caldecott Workshop.  January 10, 9:00-4:00, Salem Public Library. 
Save the date, and watch for more details in the fall about registration

See you here, there and everywhere!
