The next LEARN meeting will be Tuesday, April 14, from 2-4 p.m. at Lisle Library District. We will spend the first half of the meeting talking about recommended resources. So, please bring something to share. It can be a book, DVD, app, flyer, website, idea, etc. If you are new and do not have anything to share, bring a question. Please let me know if you plan to attend at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, we will also be discussing updating the LEARN website and the recommended resources lists. In conjunction with this, we would like to create recommended bundles of ESL resources that libraries should have depending upon if they are in a small, medium, or large library. In other words, if you only have one shelf of materials, here is a list of the essential resources you should have. If you have a medium-sized library, you should have this larger list, and so on.
Finally, we will discuss the possibility of hosting another ESL workshop for Spring 2021, which would involve inviting speakers. Who might we invite to speak? What else should the workshop include?
2:00 Introductions/Recommended Resources
3:15 Mentoring/ESL Bundles
3:45 ESL Workshop/Volunteers for Committee
4:00 Optional Tour of the Lisle ESL Collection
