Keynote, Workshops Finalized for 21st Century Literacy Days
The keynote speaker and workshops have been finalized for next month's 21st Century Literacy events in Indianapolis (8/1), Kokomo (8/9) or Columbus (8/16). Headlining each event is Ann Sanders, library consultant and former Federal Regional Depository Librarian for the state of Michigan. She plans to present valuable information on the timely topic of government documents and how your library can provide this valuable information within your community.
The FREE, day-long workshops offer a unique professional development experience and opportunity to earn four LEUs in areas such as government, legal, health, early childhood, and adult literacy. Attendees can choose from a total of 12 unique workshops scheduled throughout four sessions at each event. If that's not great enough, lunch will be provided for each person in attendance.
