Did you know that getting a good night’s sleep is just as important as eating healthy and exercising?  Sleep can help protect your mental health, physical health, quality of life, and safety. The damage from a lack of adequate sleep can occur in an instant (car accident) or over a period of time. Ongoing sleep problems can increase your risk for chronic health problems. It can also affect how well you think, react, work, learn, and get along with others.

Join us as we discuss how sleep and lack of sleep affects us and brainstorm the changes you need to make to experience a good night’s sleep!

Whether you work in a public or school library, time is your most precious resource and reading review journals is a luxury few of us can afford. Creating a collection that is lean and mean depends on two things: knowing how your collection is being used and finding the right materials to fill community needs.

We will share tips on using standard ILS reports to assess what belongs and doesn’t in your collection. Find that sweet spot in between spending too much time obsessing over what to buy and not putting any thought into developing a collection tailored to your community. Come prepared to share your favorite selection tools!
