Free CE and Training This Week – December 28 – January 1

2015 December 27
by Christina Manz

Every other week of the year, this spot shines as your weekly reminder of free CE and training webinars.

However, once a year, the hush of hibernation falls. The regular bustle of live webinar events comes to rest, and waits for the new year to announce itself. (Peek into the January 2016 CE Calendar to see what’s around the corner. Free live workshops – possibly coming to a location near you this spring? – are ready for registration. Hold your own CE eligible trainings anytime when you request DVDs from the state Library Science Collection – great for groups and kicking off staff meetings.)

Rarin’ to earn CE credit right here, right now? You have options!

Online Courses from the State Library, Skillsoft, and WebJunction are at your fingertips. The Small Library Management program has online components available, whether you’re just getting started or working toward completion. Our Texas partnership with United for Libraries offers access to even more online training.

Rather choose another adventure this week, in closer keeping with the spirit of hibernation and reflection on things past?

Perhaps you’ll turn to your choice of Werner Herzog Reads. These are NOT actually read by the famous film director, but parody his narration style and imagined artistic interpretations of familiar children’s books.

Werner Herzog Reads Where’s Waldo by RyanIverson

Werner Herzog Reads Twas The Night Before Christmas [sic]; Werner Herzog Reads Curious George; Werner Herzog Reads Madeline; Werner Herzog Reads Mike Mulligan And His Steam Shovel

If you’re not in the mood for elements of existential philosophy, this may not be your cup of tea. In that case, proceed onward.

Ready to take a study break and REALLY relax?
