Ticketed Events (these are an extra fee, optional, and require separate registration)

Morning Preconference Media Literacy, News Literacy, and Civics Education: Empowering Librarians and Teens to Navigate a Complex Landscape, Friday, 9am-12pm, $79

Afternoon Preconference: Life Skills - Program-in-a-Box, Friday, 1pm-4pm, $79.

It’s no secret that teens lack the life skills necessary to survive in the real world and teen librarians are working to address this gap. Let’s make it even easier by working together! We will teach you how to create life skills program-in-a-box kits for your library to use, share, and reshare, saving you time and energy while teaching life skills to teens. Plus, play around with existing program kits from two different library systems and learn how to share program kits whether you’re a big library system or a standalone operation.

Author Luncheon, Saturday, 12pm-1:30pm, $49.

Squatters Pub Dinner, Friday, 7:30pm, $49.
