Register for the Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy Leadership Institute and Annual Conference

Each year CLEL–Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy–hosts a unique conference focused on serving children birth-6 and their families in libraries. And this year will mark two firsts for this conference: it will be virtual, and it will include a Leadership Institute! All are welcome to these virtual experiences--we welcome out of state folks, students, volunteers, trustees, and partners!

The first of this 2-day event will be a Leadership Institute on October 8th; this event is geared for staff that are already in leadership positions, as well as those who wish to lead from where they are, and those who are looking to move up into official leadership positions. The Leadership Institute will feature ALSC president Kirby McCurtis as its keynote speaker, plus thought-provoking breakout sessions and some important calls to action.

The main conference will be on October 9th, with Library Journal Mover and Shaker Janet Damon as the keynote speaker and plentiful breakout sessions on a wide variety of topics. Both days are excellent opportunities to network with colleagues from across the state and country, snag some great ideas to try, learn something new and deepen your knowledge, and have some fun!

View the full schedule for both days here.

Registration is now open; register for the Leadership Institute and/or the Conference online. Registration deadline is September 16.

The fee to attend the Leadership Institute is $20; the main Conference is $25; and the fee to attend both days is $45.

Oh, and if you’re not already a CLEL member, please join this unique organization–it’s FREE! No need to live in Colorado to join--there are CLEL members in other states and even other countries!
