Meet Paige Bredenkamp
In 2015 the WSL added a School Library Consultant position to staff and we welcomed Paige Bredenkamp to the role. Paige provides training and support for school library services throughout Wyoming. Other duties include collecting data on school libraries and staff, maintaining the WSL professional collection, and hunting down new and time-tested ideas that work in school libraries. Paige has valuable experience in education (as an 8th grade Language Arts teacher) and working as librarian for middle and elementary schools in Wyoming and Nebraska.

Professional development is a critical component of any career, and school librarianship is no exception. Staying up to date with new ideas and colleagues in our field increases our effectiveness as teacher librarians. Explore with Paige Bredenkamp, School Library Consultant at Wyoming State Library, some of the local and national conferences of interest to Wyoming school librarians and staff. We will also look at funding opportunities.

Screencast Design for Librarians
Screencasts are digital recordings of a computer screen that can be narrated. They are valuable tools for demonstrating how to do various tasks, particularly tech-based tasks. While creating a screencast may seem daunting at first, this webinar will show you just how easy it can be, as well as free!
