Section Bibliothèques publiques

La section Bibliothèques publiques réunit les bibliothécaires travaillant dans les différents services des bibliothèques publiques, tels que : Référence, Services aux enfants et Services aux adolescents.  Les événements organisés permettent à ces bibliothécaires de partager leurs intérêts en lecture, de discuter des événements actuels, et d’être informés sur les nouveaux outils et /ou sources pouvant aider leurs bibliothèques et ses membres.  Le réseautage avec les collègues d’autres bibliothèques publiques permet aussi aux membres d’échanger leurs impressions sur les idées mises en place dans leurs bibliothèques respectives.

La section organise au moins deux événements annuellement, entre autres un rassemblement très populaire Dewey Divas, qui donne aux bibliothécaires un aperçu des nouveautés et des livres à paraître.

Parler des livres 3.0: Comment inspirer les lecteurs en ligne

L’aide au lecteur est un élément clé du service en bibliothèque publique. Les usagers se déplaçant vers des domaines plus virtuels, nous devons nous concentrer sur l’aide virtuelle en créant un espace en ligne pour inspirer les lecteurs. En vous servant de blogues et de clubs de lecture virtuels, apprenez à inspirer plutôt que conseiller des abonnés de tous âges, pour que les bibliothèques continuent à jouer un rôle important dans leurs vies de lecteurs.

Book Talking 3.0: Inspiring and Engaging Readers Online

Readers’ advisory is a key component to library services, but with users moving to more virtual domains, we must focus on virtual book talking, creating an online place for readers’ inspiration. Using blogs and online book clubs, learn to inspire rather than advise so patrons of all ages continue making libraries a part of their reading lives.

WPL Presents an Evening with Julija Sukys

Julija Sukys, the author of Epistilophilia will be speaking at Westmount Public Library on October 10. Julija’s book describes the life of Ona Simaite who was a librarian. Time after time, Ona  would enter the Jewish ghetto of Nazi-occupied Vilnius – with food and money and forged documents for those forced behind its walls; she would leave with messages to deliver on their behalf, manuscripts, letters intended for her and, on occasion, sedated children in sacks.

Please see the attached poster for all the details.
