Happy New Year!
Please join the Board of Directors in welcoming Brock Peoples (email@example.com) as SEFLIN’s next Executive Director. Brock joins us from the Sarasota County Library System where he directed the Selby Public Library since 2016. Prior to his tenure at Selby, Brock held library leadership positions in his home state of Illinois. In each of these positions, he consistently demonstrated collaborative innovative leadership as well as a commitment to his community. Brock’s appointment is effective Monday, January 11th. The Board and the SEFLIN staff are very excited to start our new year with Brock!
Due to a high demand SEFLIN is happy to offer Ryan Dowd’s eCourse “Practical Tips for Challenging Homeless Patrons“ for SEFLIN member libraries. Please send an email to Irina Galilova if you would like to register for this course.

Managing Children’s Collections from Acquisition to Weeding
Managing children’s materials in the library can be a challenge. Books look, feel, and age differently than they do in other collections. Multimedia and AV materials come and go quickly and must stand up to both the scrutiny of parents and handling by kids.

Supporting Teen Services: Fostering Community, Programming, and Outreach
Teenagers enter the library with a unique set of needs, expectations, and capacities that make them a vital and distinctive user group. To serve this population effectively, it’s not enough to know how to answer their reference questions or acquire YA novels—you need to be able to work with teens, not just for them or alongside them.
