Hello everyone,

I know it’s been a busy week and many of you are adjusting to new service models and continual changes in this challenging time. I wish for you all a weekend of rest and recovery!

For those of you focused specifically on early literacy, the below virtual conference in October may be a good place to present if you’re interested in doing so. Please see details below. If you’re not focused on early literacy, this may be a great thing to encourage your colleagues to try. It would be awesome to have Oregon represented here -  If you click the below link, you’ll see a list of proposal ideas, check it out!

Hi all,
Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL)<https://www.clel.org/>, a grassroots organization of library staff committed to strengthening children’s literacy through library services and community advocacy for young children (under 6) and their families, is offering its 12th annual conference this October. For the first time it'll be virtual, and for the first time it'll include a leadership institute the day before the conference.

Also for the first time, CLEL is seeking proposals for both the conference and leadership institute from a national audience (though preference may be given to those from Colorado). This can include library staff and folks from outside libraryland. CLEL is also considering offering a webinar series to provide a platform for great proposals that aren't included in the conference or leadership institute.

If this may be of interest to people in your state, please disseminate this announcement (and submit proposals yourselves!):

Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL) will be hosting a two day virtual conference, scheduled for October 8, 12:00-5:00 MT, and October 9, 8:00-5:00 MT, and we are seeking presenters for both days. The first day will be CLEL's first ever Leadership Institute; this event will advance the leadership skills of all participants to empower them to lead from where they are in their libraries and communities, regardless of position, experience, or skill level. The second day will focus on general topics for all library staff that serve young children and their families and caregivers. For 2020, both days of the conference will be exclusively online for the first time, while providing the high quality continuing education, networking opportunities, inspiration, and great ideas of prior CLEL Conferences.

Please click on this link to see additional information about the conference and to submit your session proposal for either day (or both days!) of the conference:
Proposal deadline: August 1, 2020

Have questions about the CLEL Conference or Leadership Institute? Please contact Beth Crist, Colorado State Library, crist_b at cde.state.co.us<mailto:crist_b at cde.state.co.us>.

Many thanks and be well,
