After the popularity of last year’s Ultimate School Library Conferences Calendar, I knew I had to do another one this year.
Conferences can be a lot of fun, and they’re crucial in terms of our professional growth and networking opportunities- especially if you’ve never been to one before or if you’re a new librarian. I hope you get a chance to attend at least one of the conferences coming up this school year.
I’ve done my best to make this a comprehensive list, but please leave a comment below if you know of a school library conference that is not listed here!
