Reading a Book in Five Minutes [MLS Whately]
Massachusetts Library System – Whately, Tuesday, April 28 at 11am
This hands-on workshop will allow library staff to try the speed reading method used by many Readers' Advisory practitioners. Learn how and why this method works — then try it yourself! Participants should bring a book that they would NOT read for pleasure (200-300 pgs) to try out this method. The workshop will end with a discussion on results (and frustrations) with the process. You can't read every book in the library, but by learning this valuable RA skill, you can read a lot more!
Instructed by Leane Ellis, Reference and Readers' Advisory Librarian, Lucius Beebe Memorial Library, Wakefield, MA (added from Eventkeeper)

Literary Placemaking in the Pioneer Valley [South Hadley]
South Hadley Public Library (MA), Thursday, April 30 at 11am
This workshop will bring together librarians from the Pioneer Valley (Hampshire, Hampden, and Franklin counties) to hear about initiatives in “creative placemaking” and to explore the ways in which librarians can leverage their knowledge and resources to contribute meaningfully to “literary placemaking” as a component of creative community development in the Pioneer Valley. The session will open with a short presentation about the creative placemaking research coming from Mass Inc. A working session focusing on the three Pioneer Valley counties will follow.  Sharon Shaloo, Executive Director of Mass Center for the Book, will lead the workshop, joined by guest speakers from the “maker,” book studies, literary museum, and bookselling communities in the Valley.  We shall explore the ways in which cross-marketing and collaboration among the broad sector of the “community of the book” in the Valley can realize the community building potential of this cultural tourism initiative and discuss the library as an information center for the initiative.  Literary land-marking, either through Mass Center for the Book or through ALA’s United for Libraries, and literary trail-making will be discussed as well. We hope this is the first gathering of what might become a Pioneer Valley Library Working Group which could meet regularly to develop high-impact strategies for community outreach and development in the region.
