“She talks a lot”

I love to talk. I really love to talk about library stuff, particularly teen stuff and community stuff. And I love to help. I love getting to mentor and teach, and I get really excited about finding ways to make tricky things easier to understand and working through challenges as part of a team.

I’ve been a presenter/teacher/speaker at library conferences, librarian training workshops and special organization meetings, but I really love visiting libraries and working with their teams. Either way, I can speak to these things:

• Community Reading Initiatives (One Book One Town)

• Teen Librarianship

      Establishing Teen Library Service

     Developing Teen-Friendly Spaces

     School/Library Collaboration

• Teen Programs

     Fandom Clubs/Programs

     Live-Action Games

     Escape/Locked Room Games

     After-Hours Adventure Games

     Pop Culture Adaptation Games

• ‘Bookstore’ Practices in Libraries

• Readers Advisory Skills and Strategies

• Genre Study Circles for Teachers or Library Staff

• For Parents: Teens and Technology/Social Media

• General Audience: History of Communication Technology/Social Media

If any of that sounds interesting, fun, and/or useful and you would like to learn more, please feel free to contact me at libraryladynicole@gmail.com.
