Michigan KidLib 2016!

I wanted to let everyone know that registration is open for the 3rd annual Michigan KidLib unconference! The date is Friday, May 13th. We have some fun new plans in motion and it should be a great event. Registration is free. We will be returning to Clinton Township (Metro Detroit) so I hope to see lots of you there. We have had people from three other states attend past events, so we are definitely not limiting attendance to Michiganians. Since we will be in the Metro area, I hope to see some library school students from U of M and Wayne State (my alma mater) as well.

Learn more on our website.

If you have any questions, you can contact the three of us planning the event: Lisa Mulvenna, Andrea Vernola, and myself by email.
