Save the date: The 2014 iYouth Conference will be on Saturday, February 8!

We are excited to announce that this year’s iYouth Conference will be held on Saturday, February 8th from 9AM – 5PM at the University of Washington’s Mary Gates Hall.

Please watch our video and pass this email on to other professionals to get the word out!

The annual iYouth conference is a one day professional development conference at the University of Washington, open for all students and professionals interested in library services for youth from birth to 18.

This year, we have chosen “[R]Evolution” as a theme that reflects the ways in which the face of librarianship is adapting to meet the evolving needs of our young patrons. We seek to discuss ways in which to help them develop tool kits to advocate for themselves.

UW Information School Dean Emeritus, Dr. Michael Eisenberg, will give a keynote speech to cap a day filled with lectures and workshops that address the increasingly important impact of technological change and community outreach programming.

The cost of the conference is $50.00 with lunch or $40.00 without for professionals. For students, the cost is $25.00 with lunch or $20.00 without. As always, continuing education credit will be offered to professionals seeking it.
