Spring forward with Parkland's Spring PD Day!
If you have a social media presence (or are contemplating one) come learn how to grow your audience with Mike McCready (not from Pearl Jam). This hands-on workshop will have you FB'ing and #hashtagging with the best of them. In the afternoon, unleash your inner Spielberg with Karyn and Rhonda. Using your own mobile device and a few simple tools you'll be saying "it's a wrap" and launching videos that highlight the best of your library in no time. Space is limited to 40 participants so sign up early!
