>Workshop: Connecting Boys with Books

>Date: Tuesday, September 11, 2007
Time: 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Place: Upper Hudson Library System
Presenter: Michael Sullivan
Cost: $25 for non-UHLS libraries (if space available after Aug. 15)

Boys are failing to read at an alarming rate. Libraries are not solving the problem because boys are not a presence in libraries. Find out how we lose boys, and why, what the consequences are for boys, and what we as librarians can do to save boys from lives as non-readers. Michael Sullivan brings more than fifteen years experience as a Children’s Librarian and Library Director, storyteller, chess teacher, and author of the book Connecting Boys With Books (ALA , 2003) and The Fundamentals of Children’s Services (ALA , 2005). He will share practical, proven, and sometimes off-beat suggestions on how to turn boys into life-long readers.
