11:45 - 12:15 = Let's Talk About...Tough Topic Bags - Jill Wilson (

Have you ever had a parent come into your library looking for advice on books to talk to their kids about tough topics like sex, bullying, divorce, or death? What if you had all of the books together in one place, where they could just grab a bag and be on their way to delving into deep conversations together as a family? In this session you will explore various "Tough Topic Bags", and find out how to bring this resource back to your own library and community.

Maggie Tevault is the Early Childhood and Youth Programs Coordinator at The Pinon Project, a Family Resource Center serving Montezuma and Dolores Counties. In order to fulfill the center’s mission of “strengthen(ing) our community by providing comprehensive services for children and families”, Pinon Project has formed strong partnerships with local libraries both formally and informally in order to better serve families in our area. We will look at several projects that have thrived over the past several years and demonstrate how libraries and family-serving agencies can work together to provide optimal outcomes for young people.
