My name is Linda Goff and I'm the Youth Services Coordinator for the 15 public libraries in Lake County Library System, which is in the center of the state not too far from Orlando. I'm on the Performers Showcase subcommitte (part of the FLA Conference Planning Committee). The 3rd annual Performers Showcase is set to take place at the next FLA conference on Thursday, April 19, 2012 at the Wyndham Orlando Resort.
The purpose of the Performers Showcase is give librarians a chance to see quality performers in action. This is an opportunity to get a “taste” of what a program may look like in their library before deciding to hire them. Performers stay after their short presentation to meet with librarians one-on-one.
So what kind of help do I need from you? Please email me contact information for good performers who charge less than $500 per show. The main focus is on performers for elementary school aged kids, but feel free to suggest other types of performers, too.
