CHILIS hosts two conferences each year.

The Spring Conference is usually held in March, and features the Kids, Books, and the Arts roster showcase. Additional programs relating to summer reading, book talks, or other areas of interest may also be included in the schedule. The CHILIS Children’s Librarian of the Year Award is presented at the Spring Conference.

The Fall Conference is usually held on the 3rd Thursday in October. This conference is focused on issues facing children’s librarians, and is always an excellent source of new ideas.
