Registration is open now for the Rhode Island Library Association's 2020 Annual Conference. What a time for all of us to Think Outside the Books as the conference will be held virtually this year! RILA will be going live on May 28 and 29 via Zoom, with keynotes, breakout sessions and virtual networking opportunities for RILA and SLRI members. Friday, May 29 has a youth/school focus, however some sessions and the keynote will be of general interest to everyone, so check out the draft schedule below!
Registrants for the virtual conference will receive access to both days of the conference as well as archived recordings of all conference sessions. Thanks to a generous sponsorship from the Office of Library and Information Services, registration for this year's conference is free for RILA and SLRI members and significantly discounted for non-members. If you are able to and would like to help support RILA and SLRI programs heading into 2021, please consider paying what you can in the form of a donation!
Registration will close on Monday, May 25, 2020. We are looking forward to seeing you all virtually on May 28 and 29!
Thursday Keynote: Julius Jefferson, ALA President Elect
Friday Keynote: Susanne Schmidt, Storyteller and Radio Producer
