The conference is providing free (ticketed) meals to allow more time to network, make connections and visit vendor booths. Meals may be consumed anywhere in the library and based on input, we may assign various areas with topics of discussion. If you're interested in topical lunchtime conversation, let us know what topics are of interest to you!
Examples: Interlibary Loans, Outreach Services, Fundraising etc.
Our generous sponsors have helped to create this wonderful opportunity for small and rural libraries. Whitehots, Carr McLean, Ontario Library Service, Saunders Books and EBSCO have all generously donated so we can make this edition of LBRR affordable and informative. To that end, please let us know if we may share your registration contact email with our sponsors.
For display in the Art Corridor: We'd love a photo of your library and something interesting (a report, pamphlet, media coverage, photo etc. to be a conversation starter). Files should be images and/or PDF suitable for printing and displaying.
