It isn't too late!

You can still complete the program and qualify to win a prize. All those who submit a completed tracking log by November 30 will receive 1.8 CEUs and be entered into a drawing to win one of our remaining MP3 players. These players are compatible with Overdrive, so you can download audiobooks from CCPL's catalog.

And that's not all! DLDS is offering a prize to the library system with the highest percentage of staff completing the program. If CCPL wins, ALL finishers (except for the Director's Staff) will be entered into a drawing to win a trip to the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

To sign up, follow the instructions below under Program Registration. When you finish, email your completed tracking log to . It's that simple.

And've gotta play to win!

Joining Up

Carroll County Public Library is very pleased to announce our participation in the statewide Maryland Libraries Learning 2.0 - 23 Things project. The program runs from June 4 - August 31, 2007.

Carroll County Public Library is also very pleased to announce that a number of school media staff from Carroll County Public Schools will be joining us in this project. If you are one of our school partners, welcome! You will want to register here for this project.

You can cancel your registration anytime.

CEUs and Prizes
You can earn 1.8 CEUs by completing this program. Also, take a look at these great prizes that you can win if you complete this project!

Everyone who completes the program by August 31 will receive an MP3 player like this one:

The MuVo v100 (or similar) has 1 GB of memory and is compatible with OverDrive. You'll be able to use it to download those great audiobooks from CCPL's catalog, as well as the music you enjoy.

Can't finish by August 31? If you complete the program by October 15, you'll be entered in a drawing to win one of these MP3 players.

And that's not all! Everyone who completes the program by October 15 will be entered in a drawing to win an 80 GB iPod that holds 20,000 songs, up to 25,000 photos, and up to 100 hours of video — or any combination of each. Watch movies and TV episodes, play games, listen to audiobooks and podcasts--so much media, so little time! The iPod drawing will be held on Staff Day.


Please contact your liaison, Gail Griffith , if you have questions about this project. Don't forget that she is not the instructor, though, as we encourage you to visit each other's blogs for ideas and help with the technologies.

Thing 4 Details

To complete Thing #4, you'll need to register your blog.

Please use your WORK email address, as registration is monitored. Remember that your blog address can be anonymous on your blog, but your liaison needs to know the address so you can be added to our Participant Blog List.
