Join more than 350 fellow children's librarians and educators for ALSC's two and a half day National Institute. The Institute is everything you need in one place--programming, keynotes, networking and much more.  This intensive learning opportunity with a youth services focus and is designed for front-line youth library staff, children’s literature experts, education and library school faculty members, and other interested adults.  It is one of the only conferences devoted solely to children's librarianship, literature and technology and takes place every two years.



This event will take place at the centrally-located Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. Learn more about booking your housing and travel as well as exploring the city of Minneapolis.
