How do they dress, anyway? Probably a lot like children’s librarians when it comes right down to it! Wear something “scientific” to the CHILIS spring conference on March 6 and receive a discount on raffle tickets. Join in the fun and support CHILIS at the same time.

The conference is Thursday, March 6, from 9 to 4:30, at the SNHU campus in Manchester. Don’t miss all the fun: Librarian of the Year presentation, the ever-popular CHILIS raffle, and the invaluable KBA showcase. We’ll have presentations of sample STEM-related story times for this summer and rapid reviews of thematic titles. Yummy food, friendly colleagues, and plenty of laughs–who could ask for anything more?!
See you there! (Deadline for registration is February 21.)
