Please join us on October 18th, 2018 at the The Oaks Grandview Ballroom in Somersworth, NH for our annual CLNH Fall conference. As usual, we will conduct our business meeting, have raffles, food and drinks, and plenty of time for connecting with our colleagues. The upcoming summer reading theme is “A Universe of Stories,” celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing. Wear clothing related to the theme to earn a free raffle ticket! New members of CLNH will receive a free raffle ticket as well.
We have a full day of science and space related presentations planned, leading up to the Kids, Books, & the Arts showcase of performers! The NH Astronomical Society and McAuliffe-Shepard Discovery Center will present options for space themed programming and the resources they can offer, and a panel of your NH children’s librarian peers will talk about popular STEM programs from across the state. Finally, the KBA showcase will close out the conference. Raffle tickets will be sold throughout the day for prize baskets of wonderful goodies for your library! Winning tickets can only be redeemed by staying to the end of the conference. A KBA grant winner will be announced for those libraries that filled out an evaluation form about this year’s summer reading program.
Just to remind everyone, this year the CLNH Executive Board voted to move the KBA showcase to the Fall Conference instead of the Spring Conference to allow more time to schedule performers and plan for upcoming summer reading programs. The video showcase this past Spring was part of the transition to this format.
The conference will start at 8:30 and wrap up at 4:30 p.m. Please familiarize yourself with the NHLA conference/class cancellation policy and let us know of any food allergies or considerations you may require.
