2016 ALSC National Institute

Thank you to the more than 300 fellow children's librarians and educators who attended ALSC's two and a half day National Institute this September in Oakland, California! The Institute was a success and we appreciate our attendees, sponsors, and speakers for their contributions!

Be sure to join us for the next Institute - September 15 - 17, 2016, in Charlotte, North Carolina!


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.
