I love attending school library conferences, conventions, and workshops. Here’s a list of conferences specifically for school librarians in the upcoming school year. I hope you get to attend at least one of these exciting events!
Also, I’ll speaking at the CSLA conference in San Jose in November. My session is called “Figuring Out Faith: A Discussion on Issues on Religious & Parochial School Libraries.” The session will be more of a roundtable discussion, and will allow for plenty of time for sharing among colleagues.
