Washington Library Association Conference: Panel Presenter

This year (2021, in case you’re not sure) I’ve been invited by the Seattle Public Library to join them in presenting at the Washington Library Association Conference about an inter-library system service I partnered to help develop and lead. Your Next Job is a free one-on-one service where individuals can virtually meet with reference staff to get assistance with job-related tasks, such as: applying for unemployment, learning technology basics, connecting with resources to help job seek, or applying for a job. Last year, I co-led the King County Library System arm of the service (you can read more about that here). I’m delighted to be presenting in my first professional panel to discuss this work!

If you’re planning to attend WLA 2021, we are presenting in-person on October 2nd. My name isn’t on the program information (yet) but I will be there!

UPDATE: Unfortunately, WLA 2021 was cancelled due to COVID concerns.
