Fall Into Books

Fall Into Books Conference

Held annually, Fall Into Books brings together school and public librarians from eight counties within the Hudson Valley. This collaborative event features book discussion sessions -ranging from picture books to young adult, a keynote speaker covering a current library related topic, an author presentation and book signing and a beautifully catered lunch. This full day event has brought together school and public librarians for a day of literacy, discussion, networking and insight for 20 years.

6 Reasons Why Librarians Should Attend
1. Engage effectively in collaborative discussions
2. Analyze how two or more texts address similar themes or topics in order to build knowledge or to compare the approaches the authors take.
3. Assess how point of view or purpose shapes the content and style of a text.
4. Read closely to determine what the text says explicitly and to make logical inferences from it; cite specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
5. Determine central ideas or themes of a text and analyze their development; summarize the key supporting details and ideas.
6. Analyze how and why individuals, events, or ideas develop and interact over the course of a text.
