posted October 22, 2013 5:34 PM
The Foundation for Children's Books is hosting a
development conference called "What's New in Children's Books
?" for librarians and teachers, and featuring several authors and illustrators. Our upcoming conference is to be held on Saturday, November 2nd and we are looking for 2 GSLIS students who would be interested in helping us out by staffing our registration table for the event.
This would be a great opportunity for anyone interested in Youth Services or School Libraries: firstly, because you would get to attend the event for free (students usually pay $25) and secondly, it would be a great opportunity to network as the event is attended by representatives of each of the nearby public library systems as well as a whole host of public and private school librarians.
We would need the volunteers at the event for 8AM, but once the registration is complete they are free to simply sit in on the conference. Anyone who is interested can contact firstname.lastname@example.org
