Reader’s Advisory & Beyond

March 31, 2011

Five Weeks.  Multiple Programs.  

Participate on your own schedule!

Each week consists of:

  • Two live and archived webinars on Tuesday and Thursday mornings
  • Simple homework to help you learn more about the topic  of the week
  • Links to presentations, websites, and readings for more information on the advisory services

Use the links on right side of this site to explore each program, find out how to log into the live webinar (or watch the archive), view the selected links to more information, and complete the homework for the topic.
