Beth, Joy, and Stef made a presentation about Project Play at the Wisconsin Library Association annual conference on Thursday, November 6th in Middleton, Wisconsin. Here’s the program description:
Project Play was a very successful Library 2.0 learning project among three library systems during 2007-08. Learn from the coordinators how it worked, what library workers learned from participating, and how your library can successfully replicate the project.
