School and Children's librarians -- Please Share Your Expertise...

        A discussion of how to reach young library users with ideas about
the care and handling of books and other preservation themes has been the
focus of recent meetings of the Education and Outreach Discussion Group
of the ALA Preservation of Library Materials Section (PLMS).

        To further this discussion, School and Children's librarians are
invited to join their Preservation colleagues for a meeting in Miami.
The perspective of librarians who work directly with children and young
adults will provide a much needed complement to preservation expertise
among PLMS members.

Some of the issues raised in previous meetings:
        How to handle books and other materials
        Food and drink in libraries
        Teaching children about bookbinding and book arts
        Preservation posters and other media appropriate for children
        Possible programs for girl scouts, boy scouts, youth groups

Please join us in Miami:  PLMS Education and Outreach Discussion Group
                        June 27, 11:30-12:30,  Omni-LaBrisa

Also of interest for school and children's librarians:
        "Selling Preservation: What to Say to the Customer"
        June 27, 2:00-5:00, Miami Beach Convention Center

        This program will address practical strategies for public,
school, academic, and special libraries.  Handouts and exhibits of
successful preservation campaigns will be included.
