Reality Check: Level Up

Presented by the Ontario Library Association
Thursday, November 3, 2016, 9:00 AM – 4:15 PM | London Public Library, Central Branch

You want me to do what!? This is the reality of being a children and youth services library worker. It’s no longer only planning for storytime, you are also making key connections to ensure the viability of public libraries.  You innovate, you learn, you use your expertise in community building to shape the future of libraries.  Step beyond your comfort zone - fast! 

Join us on Thursday, November 3rd, 2016 at Central Branch of London Public Library.

The Child and Youth conferences have gone through many changes through the years. The Expo was an extremely popular aspect of the OLA Super Conference, but we outgrew the space and in 2014 we decided that we needed a full day devoted to our program! It has been a sold out event ever since! The Children’s and Youth Services Expo is the go-to event for library staff working with children and youth.    

Have a look at our past conferences for what we’ve held in the past.
