Parkland's Fall Conference 2012
Parkland Regional Library's annual Fall Conference for school and public libraries was held at the Lacombe Memorial Centre on Monday, October 1, 2012.
We put together a day of learning, sharing, and fun for library staff and trustees from around the region. With the return of favourite topics, such as book repair, challenged materials, and social media, and exciting new sessions on storytelling, graphic novels, and fraud prevention there was something for everyone! We also featured new and returning vendors by giving attendees a chance to sign up for dedicated vendor visiting time.
Registration deadline: September 12th. Free registration for Parkland member library staff or board members. Other registrants: $50.
Training materials from past conferences, workshops, and professional development days are located under the relevant topic area of our website, or may be requested from your consultant.
