Changing the World One Book at a Time with Laura Griner and Melinda Hoffman
Did you know that many countries across the globe do not have children's library collections in their public libraries, and thousands of mothers and fathers in the world do not have a tradition of reading a bedtime story from a picture book to their children at night? This presentation is a tale of two women who are working to change global literacy one book at a time starting with Afghanistan. In just a year's time we have had quite an adventure, but more importantly we have learned that the power of literacy and education is the portal to the development of a war-torn country like Afghanistan whose literacy rate is 28%. In this informative presentation you will experience laughter, tears, and be inspired to look beyond your backyard to share your love of reading with the people of our world. For more information about this journey visit our blog at www.afghanbookcollection.com

Please! Not Another PowerPoint with Cathy Jo Nelson
This session is designed to provide the librarian seeking to engage in collaborative projects with teachers and students options beyond the traditional PowerPoint teachers love to assign.
