Ann Arbor, MI— Hundreds of Librarians will descend upon Osage Beach, Missouri to hear Pete Thomas, the Season 2 At-Home Winner of NBC’s “The Biggest Loser” deliver an inspirational keynote address at the 2012 Conference of the Missouri Association of School Librarians. Pete Thomas will deliver a two-hour pre-conference workshop on Sunday as well as a motivational keynote on Monday, April 23rd.
“I’m very excited to address Missouri’s school librarians,” Thomas states. “Our librarians have a tremendous amount of influence on our children. They help shape what our children read and help to encourage a love of learning. Alongside teachers, librarians are on the front lines in the battle against obesity, and I applaud their interest in their health and the health of Missouri’s children!
The 2012 Spring Conference will include a variety of workshops designed to offer tips, tools, creative ideas and strategies to help librarians inspire a love of reading in school-age children. Thomas will inspire librarians to make their health a top priority, as well as offer strategies for generating enthusiasm among children in the area of nutrition and exercise.
