What is an Unconference?
An “unconference” is a participant-guided learning opportunity that encourages peer networking and audience participation. The unconferences will serve as an opportunity to peer teach among library colleagues, providing a forum for librarians to collaborate on creating engaging and empowering experiences for the children and parents they serve, while being a value-added opportunity designed specifically for Children’s Services Division members.

Who Should Attend: Members Only. Exclusively for members of the OLC’s Children’s Services Division.

Continuing Education Credits: For those working toward their Ohio Public Librarian or Ohio Public Library Staff re-certification, this workshop counts as six (6) contact hours.
