Huntington Beach Library :: Literacy Conference a Hit

Literacy Conference a Hit
Open Doors: March 2016

155 attendees and presenters were at the March 5th SCLLN Conference & Writer-to-Writer Celebration held again this year at the Buena Park Holiday Inn.

The Southern California Library Literacy Network Conference offers a variety of workshops designed to teach new techniques, brush up on skills and gather information, as well as time to make new friends, greet "old" friends, and listen to the heartwarming letters written by winners of the Writer-to-Writer Challenge.

Diane Moseley thanked the hardworking committee for tirelessly and seamlessly planning the day, and stated that this is always a rewarding day of learning and camaraderie. As the Writer-to-Writer winners read their letters to the authors about a book that touched them, the audience listened in awe.

97 letters were received this year from 16 different library literacy programs, including Huntington Beach. This was a record number of letters, and we are shooting for 100 next year! A booklet containing letters of the winners and runners-up is available in the literacy office.

The next SCLLN conference will be held in 2018, while the writer to Writer-to-Writer challenge continues every year. It's not too early for learners to start reading a book that will inspire them to write to the author. Complete directions and rules, and a suggested book list, are available in the literacy office.  READ MORE @
