  2. 2. A Message from President Gene Coppola Dear Colleagues, One of my heroes is Robert Kennedy. He stood for ideals that are still true today. He once said, “There are those that look at things the way they are, and ask why? I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?” It seems more time is spent on churning up excuses for not doing something rather than reasons for doing it. Yes, there will be unmovable obstacles. Yes, there will be moments of flailing at windmills. Yes, you will be the only one to see it. And yes, there will be times that others will see it too. That is why my theme for 2015-2016 is “Why not?” Why not collaborate with your opposite? Why not take a field trip instead of a meeting? Why not imagine? Who’s going to stop you? Why not try one more time? Thomas Edison tested over 3,000 filaments before he came up with his version of a practical light bulb. As librarians, we’re part of the backbone for enlightenment and growth. We serve not just to improve the quality of life but also fill those essential needs. Kennedy also said, “All of us might wish at times that we lived in a more tranquil world, but we don't. And if our times are difficult and perplexing, so are they challenging and filled with opportunity.” I agree.

Past, Present, Future: The Impact of Youth Services on Young Adults Granada C Library staff plan all sorts of events for teens to encourage active library participation, but what do teens think about this? Do these activities have any impact on their lives? What will the teens remember about their experiences at the public library? Will they become library support- ers? Or will these young people never enter the library doors again? Meet present and former teens and learn what has impacted their lives in regards to YA programs and activities. Speakers: Jana Fine, Florida Division of Library and Information Services; Mary Whiting, Volusia County Public Library; Angela Wilhelm, Philip James Lambert, Heather Hunter, Sophie Semensky. Using Word Clouds to Assist with Collection Development Granada E At the FAU Libraries, our Technical Services, Digital Library, and Collec- tion Development units work together to describe, manage and use metadata from our Electronic Theses and Dissertations. Presenters will describe how the metadata are captured and used to create a word cloud. Attendees will learn how this gives subject selectors a picture of research interests, which is a new tool for them in collection develop- Simmer Down! Conflict De-escalation Strategies for Mitigating Critical or Tense Situations People love libraries, in part, because they are inclusive, welcoming and peaceful. But when that peace is disrupted by a difficult, frustrated, belligerent or even dangerous person, staff must know what to do. On a daily basis librarians face a wide variety of situations that must be resolved; patrons who quarrel or fight over resources, or who fight or quarrel with each other, staff members who are in conflict with one another, patrons who are in an altered state of mind and disruptive and patrons who are simply doing things at the library that are prohibited. This interactive workshop, hosted by a panel of experts, focuses on verbal and non-verbal communication strategies and defensive actions that librarians can use to manage and de-escalate conflicts. Listen to presenta- tions from law enforcement and public and academic library experts on current practices and participate in role playing activities to help you be prepared in the event that you are faced with a critical situation. Speakers: Senior Deputy Dennis Terrero, Volusia County Sheriff's Office; Barbara Pickell, Library Director at the Clearwater Public Library; Susan- nah Miller, Associate Dean of Administrative Services and Renaine Julian, former Security Supervisor, Florida State University. 2016 Florida Library Association Preconference February 29: 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. 2016 Florida Library Association Conference Guide Page 9

Speakers: Zach English, Sunghae Ress and Ethan Fenichel, Florida Atlantic University Practical Strategies for Library Advocates Using Social Networks Granada GH In 2014, voters in 77 library-funding initiatives voted to approve public library funding in campaigns featuring consistent contact with funders and strategic use of messages to demonstrate the importance of libraries. This program presents an analysis of the 2013 Miami-Dade County social network campaign that illustrates:  How library advocates use social networks for successful campaigns  Messages shared by public officials and library advocates  Values shared by participants  Responsible and effective use of social media Speaker: Laura Spears, Florida State University Facilitating Wellness @ your library Granada I This program highlights an innovated way in which the library can be part of a community by taking a holistic approach to facilitating well- ness and addressing increasing community health concerns. A panel of experts will discuss how the New Port Richey Public Library (NPRPL) spearheaded a gmo-free, heirloom seed library as well as a local farm- ers market dubbed Tasty Tuesdays (TT). TT engages organic growers to share harvests as well as micro-farming instruction. Federal grant funding supports NPRPL's acceptance of EBT SNAP benefits and incen- tives. NPRPL participates in a nationwide study, surveying dietary changes among incentive recipients and has supported community well-being for adults and youth alike for over a decade. Classes include Smoothie Smackdown, various Martial Arts, Meditation, Eco-Films, Tapping/EFT, and health-based opportunities for staff. Speakers: Susan Dillinger, Jessica Meredith, Stephanie Jones, Ann Scott and Debbie Plotkin, New Port Richey Public Library FLA One Book, One State: Condominium Organized by the Leadership Development Committee Plaza Real C In the spirit of this year’s conference theme, Why Not? FLA President, Gene Coppola, selected a work of fiction instead of a professional development book for the 2016 One Book One State program. How- ever, Condominium does touch upon concepts of organizational lead- ership and personal leadership styles, but more importantly, this book showcases the unique and marvelous social structure, geography and fragile ecosystem of our state. And it’s a fun read! This will be a panel discussion composed of past FLA presidents who have enthusiastically volunteered to participate as they did for our program last year. Tech for All! Innovative Public Library Technology Training Programming for Targeted Audiences Vista del Mar Public libraries have been in the forefront of providing technology literacy programming in an increasingly digital world. And, the com- munities that libraries serve are becoming more diverse in language background, skill level, and interests; this necessitate going beyond the one-size-fits-all approach for public training programs. Learn how the Jacksonville Public Library E-Services and Digital Access depart- ment developed, promoted, and successfully implemented the Com- puter Classes in Spanish-the first free program of its kind in northeast FL, Technology for Seniors, Tech for ESL Learners, and the Urban Li- brary Council Innovation Award winning Conversational Language Learning series which employed cultural immersion strategies in train- ing and marketing JPL’s online language learning product. Participants will gain knowledge in recruiting e-volunteers, using existing resources to develop cost-efficient programs as well as working with local commu- nity partners. These types of services open up numerous possibilities in truly offering services that are meaningful and present technology train- ing in a fun, welcoming environment. Speakers: Eric Soriano, Katherine Minor, Donna Peretzman and Luis Ter- ron, Jacksonville Public Library 2:00 p.m. — 2:15 p.m. Colonnade Session Break 2:15 p.m. — 3:30 p.m. Concurrent Sessions FLA Member Group Speed Dating Vista del Mar One of the great benefits of being a member of FLA is networking with librarians from other libraries who have similar positions or interests. Come and hear about all of the interesting things that are happening in FLA's Member Groups. At this fast paced session you'll have the oppor- tunity to spend a few minutes with each one. Non-members are welcome too! Speakers: Gene Coppola, Palm Harbor Library; FLA Member Group Leaders Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative Member Group Meeting and Update Granada AB This session will focus on library products and services managed by the Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative (FALSC) for Florida’s 40 public colleges and universities.

  10. 10. Tuesday generation ILS, statewide e-resource licensing, FALSC’s Help Desk, and the new FloridaShines.org website. It will also include updates on FALSC’s Members Council on Library Services, activities within the K-20 environment, and legislative activities impacting FALSC’s library-related services. Speakers: Lucy Harrison and Linda McCarthy, Florida Academic Library Services Cooperative Why Not? Libraries = Education: Adult Literacy Through Libraries (ALL): An Action Agenda Granada C In Florida, 1 in 5 adults lack basic literacy skills, we are the third lowest state in the nation. In this session we'll explore how to implement the 2014 Adult Literacy through Libraries (ALL) Action Agenda developed by a task force appointed by the American Library Association and ProLit- eracy. A task force member will facilitate group discussions on technol- ogy and digital literacy, partnerships, planning, raising awareness and the library’s educational role. A volunteer tutor trainer, representing New Readers Press, will cover GED test changes and trends in literacy collections. Speakers: Sandy Newell, Florida Department of State and Glenda Norvell, Board Member with the Volunteers for Adult Literacy in Florida and the Gadsden County Public Library Friends and Florida Representa- tive for New Reader There's No Stopping Us Now! Why Systematic Staff Training Keeps the Organization Moving Forward. Granada E Libraries have shifted from repositories of materials to centers of inno- vation and community-based learning. Many library services changed to accommodate the shift; some staff find this difficult and perplexing and it has led to technological wariness and resistance to change. To address this we developed a continuous in-house professional devel- opment program. We will discuss barriers and enablers to establishing a program and unintended benefits, such as reducing perceived ine- qualities among staff, increasing trust, and empowering staff. Speakers: Lisandra R. Carmichael, Stephanie Weiss and Lauren Newton, University of North Florida Why Not Master Your Copy Rights and Responsibilities? Granada F Librarians need to understand the fundamentals of copyright law to safeguard their libraries from infringement and potential lawsuits. In this program, participants will discover how to recognize and avoid copyright infringement, conduct a fair use analysis, and find Creative Commons-licensed images and other freely reusable online materials. The presenter then will walk participants through a range of library copyright scenarios, helping you to master the fundamentals of your copy rights and responsibilities. Speakers: Michael Rodriguez, Hodges University Jump Around: Motor Development for Babies and Toddlers Granada GH The Orange County Library System is offering a dynamic approach to fine motor skills through early childhood programming. Events include Baby Bash, which enables sensory development through felt boards and art; Bubble Playtime, which allows toddlers to develop fine motor skills while jumping and dancing; and SMART Start, which encourages cognitive thinking through science, math, and art. These programs in- crease a child's awareness, sensitivity, hand-eye coordination, and so- cial skills. Why not jump up, jump up and get down at the library? Speakers: Danielle King, Lauren Mathur and Debra Winslow; Orange County Library System Partners in Education: Strengthening Your Position Granada I Does your public library help students from nearby schools? Why not leverage that informal relationship into an agreement with the school system? Why not strengthen your community position and increase your value as an educational resource? Why not increase support from elected officials, community leaders, and school leadership? In this ses- sion, we will discuss the nuts & bolts of the agreement, describe how the library reached out to the school system, crafted an agreement, launched a pilot project, and began system-wide implementation. Speakers: Ginny Howerton, Christine Patten, Library Director and Sara White, Seminole County Public Library System; Kathy Green, Seminole County Public Schools Collaborating with Your Local Schools: It’s a Group Project! Organized by the Youth Services Member Group Plaza Real C This presentation will offer options that have worked for the Dunedin Public Library on collaborating with local schools. We'll have practical, easily replicated programming efforts for public schools, private schools and preschools. Speakers: Phyllis Gorshe, Olivia Wilson and Katherine Kastanis, Dunedin Public Library; Kerry Apuzzo, Dunedin Elementary School Academic Librarian Publishing Roundtables Veranda Lounge Looking for other librarians to collaborate with on publishing? Come to the Academic Publishing Roundtable and connect with other scholars with similar pursuits. Discuss potential ideas for articles, books, pro- grams, etc., at this informal meeting. And, find other librarians interest- ed in similar scholarly topics to collaborate with in the future. 3:30 p.m. — 3:45 p.m. Colonnade Session Break Page 11
  11. 11. 3:45 p.m. — 4:45 p.m. Concurrent Sessions Public Library Service Planning With A Purpose Granada AB Largo Public Library staff hosted community conversations to gather input on local aspirations and then asked, 'How can the library align services to help attain the desired results'? The Purpose Based Li- brary, Finding Your Path to Survival, Success and Growth by John J. Huber and Stephen V. Potter became a road map for using input and metrics for planning programs. Huber's Hierarchy of Community Needs shaped the library's goals and objectives, invigorated the staff and made it a more visible presence in the community. Speaker: Casey McPhee, Largo Public Library Technical Services, Why Not Me? Tips and Tricks for Accidental Technical Services Librarians Organized by the Technical Services Group Granada E Librarians performing technical services duties are not always trained in the various processes of technical services. This panel discussion will review current library job descriptions that require knowledge of tech- nical services, present the best continuing education resources availa- ble to meet the demands of technical services and will include net- working and professional development ideas for new librarians. Partic- ipating panelists including new and experienced technical services librarians will offer their own tips and tricks of the trade. Speakers: Darla Asher, Saint Leo University; Alyssa N.

Speakers: Shannon Dew, Inez Whipple, Barbara Markham and Ian Vanhoof, Florida State College at Jacksonville Vendor/Library Relationships: What Works, What Doesn't, and Why Not? Granada F Have you ever wondered how to cultivate good vendor/library commu- nication? Do you know the strategies to use to yield positive results when handling delicate vendor disputes? This 60 minute up-beat presen- tation will discuss the best and worst practices surrounding vendor/ library relationships from a technical services’ perspective. Knowing the strategies to implement may assist your workflow and help to create a feeling of Zen at the end of the day. We will address the techniques that work, the ones that don’t, and why not! Speakers: Sandy Avila, Brittany O'Neill and Stephanie Bertone, Barry University School of Law Why Not Play Ball? When Athletes and Librarians Play Together, Everyone Wins Granada GH Who are the last students you expect to see in a university library? Probably athletes. Tight schedules structured around classes, homework, practices, and athletic events, leave student athletes very little free time. Because they have their own academic support struc- ture, libraries often don’t reach out to Athletics. Join librarians and athletic academic support staff from UNF to hear what happens when they team up to support student success. Come prepared to share your stories of successful collaboration with an unlikely partner. Speakers: Stephanie Race, Lisandra Carmichael and Cat Silvers, Universi- ty of North Florida Library; Nancy Miller, University of North Florida Ath- letics Department Battle the Slide: Why Not Fulfill our Mission? Granada I North Miami Beach Library accepted last year’s challenge to focus on the library’s educational mission. Partnering with fellow librarians NMB was able to deliver original reading comprehension content & motivate ele- mentary age children to read. With up to date results, NMB was able to gauge student success, comprehension, maintenance & gain during the summer month thus battling the infamous Summer Slide. From initiation to motivation, international recognition, Library’s mission presentation before the Governing Body & program distribution will be shared. Speakers: Edenia Hernandez, North Miami Beach Library; Hong Huang, University of South Florida; Sam KW Chu, University of Hong Kong FLA Public Library Outcomes and Standards Committee Program Plaza Real C Join this discussion about use of the new 2015 Public Library Standards and Outcomes.
