NHLA FALL CONFERENCE & BUSINESS MEETING
Registration opening soon
Thursday, November 9th, 2023, 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
Common Man Inn & Spa
231 Main Street, Plymouth, NH 03264
Keynote: Make Thinking Fun - And Effective: Using the Six Thinking Hats
Our Guest Speaker: Dorothy Stoltz
Dorothy is a professional librarian, author, and deBono thinking methods trainer who has worked for decades in the field of librarianship programming, outreach manager, and community engagement director. She firmly believes that both the quality of our thinking and the love of learning are incomplete without the support of each other. Good library services, programs, and collections need to include the use of the mind to think creatively and thoroughly.
Dorothy will be leading a introductory demonstration/presentation and follow up activity on The Six Thinking Hats (de Bono method of thinking creatively) to illustrate looking at things in different ways while using a deliberate process for drawing out one's thinking abilities.
Registration information coming soon!
