North Carolina Library Paraprofessional Association
The North Carolina Library Paraprofessional Association (NCLPA) is a round table of the North Carolina Library Association (NCLA). Most members are paraprofessionals, but all who advance the interests of support staff in the library workplace are welcome to join. We invite you to contact any Executive Board officer with your questions about NCLPA. Get involved today!
In October the 60th NCLA conference strives to prove we are all "Stronger Together!" To support that theme the NCLPA roundtable will sponsor a diverse selection of programs aimed at library staff from any institution.
"Top 10 Tips for Teen Programming" - Katie Huneycutt
"We're Dumbledore's Army: How the Harry Potter Alliance and Libraries Have Changed the World" - Sarah Davis
Lunch Program: "Gaming Together" - Christopher Harris
"The Evolution of e-Books" - Christopher Harris
In all we hope those able to attend will take this information back to their libraries, share it with their peers, and continue to prove that we truly are "Stronger Together!"
