Please join us at the Beane Center in Laconia on Thursday, October 27th for our annual fall conference, sponsored by Children’s Librarians of New Hampshire (CHILIS-NH).
This year, we’ll focus on protecting our youngest patrons with expert advice from local law enforcement and the New Hampshire chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union. We’ll wrap up the day with a variety of ideas from seasoned professionals for taking your story times up a notch.
As always, we’ll conduct a business meeting, elect new officers, have raffles and delicious food, and ample opportunity for networking and sharing our successes and challenges.
See you soon! ~your CHILIS-NH Board

By following the link provided, your vote tallies can easily be added to our totals, and the results can be quickly tabulated. Sarah Hydorn, who has been the official vote-counter for many years, is thrilled!! She strongly encourages you to use this option, although, of course, any vote tallies she receives, be they online, email, or snail mail, will be gratefully added to our totals. Please follow the link, take a look at the form, and enter your vote tallies as soon as you have them–we think you’ll agree that it’s easy to do!
As always, thank you so much for your participation—we couldn’t do it without you!
