ALSC National Institute is a biennial intensive learning opportunity and one of the only conferences devoted solely to children's librarianship, literature, and technology.

The 2020 ALSC Virtual Institute welcomes anyone interested in developing their skills, competencies, and awareness of issues in children's literacy and library service, including front-line youth librarians and library workers; children's literature experts and practitioners; education and library school faculty; and other interested adults. This year's schedule includes six general sessions of authors, illustrators, and thought leadership in children's literacy and development; a robust slate of education programs; and virtual networking opportunities!

Through the support of the William C. Morris Endowment, ALSC is pleased to offer this year's Institute at a significantly-reduced registration rate; this is an excellent opportunity for those typically precluded from attending in-person Institute due to travel and costs to participate in high-quality, dynamic programming. Scholarships are also available for ALSC members; the scholarship application deadline is Friday, August 28, 2020. Register today!
