Online courses

ALSC is pleased to offer online courses every winter, spring, summer and fall. Courses are four to six weeks in length, and are offered in Moodle, an online classroom environment. Many courses are now CEU certified, and range value from 1.2 to 3 CEUs.  All courses are offered asynchronously, so there isn't a need to login at a certain time.  Perfect for the continuing learner with a busy schedule!


In keeping up with the association’s goal to provide children’s librarians with timely, educational and affordable professional development, ALSC hosts multiple webinars every month.  These short (one to two hour) sessions give you the opportunity to learn in real-time without having to travel, all while being extremely affordable.

Pre-recorded webcasts

Looking for something on demand?  ALSC offers pre-recorded webcasts that can be viewed whenever and wherever and range from 60 to 90 minutes long.  There is no limit to the number of times you can view the webcast and the cost is only $25!

Student sessions

Join ALSC members across the country for a free, one-hour virtual workshop. Held quarterly, ALSC student sessions are complimentary for members, and non-members interested in children's library services.
