ALSC Learning and Networking

ALSC always has a learning or networking opportunity for you!

ALSC Institute

Institute LogoIn case you missed it, National Institute registration has opened! This fall, children’s librarians, youth services staff, and others interested in library service to children will gather in Minneapolis, MN for ALSC’s two and a half day conference. The conference, themed “Dive In: Engage, Amplify, Activate” will be held October 1 – 3, 2020. The early bird deadline is June 29, but I would recommend registering as soon as possible. Education programs and descriptions are available on the ALSC website and a full list of keynote speakers will be announced soon. Our “Breakfast for Bill” program panelists will include: Bao Phi , Minh Lê , Cheryl Minnema, and Kalia Yang! 

ALSC Webinars

ALSC has a bunch of live webinars coming up! With topics ranging from advocacy to babies in the library, you’ll want to register for one of these upcoming webinars. If you cannot attend live, the ALSC online learning logorecordings are made available to ALSC members as a complementary membership perk!

ALSC Volunteer Form

Are you interested in volunteering for one of ALSC’s 50+ committees? ALSC members are welcomed to submit their volunteer form! ALSC Vice President, Kirby McCurtis is in the process of making appointments for process committees (non-book award committees).

I hope all ALSC members consider getting involved in some way!
