Subject: [yscon] Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL) Conference Registration is Open!

Hi all,
CLEL Conference registration is open! Please feel free to register yourself and spread the word in your states, as the conference is virtual and open to everyone interested (and very reasonably priced!):

Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy (CLEL) is pleased to announce registration is open for the 10th annual CLEL Conference: The Little Engine that Could . . . Moving Over the Mountain! CLELCON is Colorado’s premier conference dedicated to early literacy professional development in libraries. This year’s conference will be held once again virtually after last year’s success bringing in voices from around the globe. The virtual conference will be accessible from anywhere in the world and all conference sessions (except the pre-conference) will be recorded and available for six months. CLEL members can register for all three days for only $35 (and by the way, CLEL membership is FREE!). Find the full details at clel.org/conference<http://clel.org/conference>

Wednesday, October 6th 11am-3pm MST: Pre-Conference Workshop

Thursday, October 7th 8:30-5:00 pm MST: Leadership Institute

Friday, October 8th 8:30am-5:30pm MST: Main Conference

Register at https://www.clicweb.org/events/2021-clel-virtual-conference-registration/

While the pre-conference is offered at no charge, space is limited -- please select the pre-conference drop-down menu option in addition to the member or non-member conference when registering. If the registration is full, please select the wait list option and we will follow up with you. We also request you provide your address when asked so we can mail you your pre-conference materials.

This year’s main conference, October 8 - 8:30-5:30 pm MST, will feature multiple interactive discussion sessions with fellow practitioners, keynote address with 2020 LJ Mover & Shaker, Janet R. Damon, and CLEL’s first picture book author panel!


Several exciting new expansions are included in this year’s conference. Due to increased interest and 2020’s success, we will continue the Leadership Institute on October 7 at 8:30 am-5:00 pm MST. Whether you are an aspirational leader or seasoned supervisor, this year’s program is sure to inspire innovation and insightful discussion of ways to apply practical leadership to your daily work serving our communities.

Additionally, we are excited to host a Pre-Conference workshop, Reimagining School Readiness, on October 6 from 11 am-3 pm MST. This interactive, hands-on workshop comes to us thanks to a partnership with Colorado State Library, and is a project of the Bay Area Discovery Center (CA), funded by IMLS (Institute of Museum and Library Services). Participants will be introduced to the Reimagining School Readiness Toolkit<https://bayareadiscoverymuseum.org/resources/educator-resources/library-toolkit>, a suite of research-backed resources created for library staff to help families prepare children ages birth to 8 for success in school and in life.

CLEL is also providing an opportunity for volunteers to edit the captions of two hours of recorded conference sessions. Volunteers will receive free attendance to all 3 days of the event. Library staff, volunteers, and students, including non-Colorado residents, are all eligible for this opportunity. Please complete the application by September 6 before registering for the conference here: https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/6449762/2021-CLEL-Conference-Volunteer-Application. Applicants will be notified by email by September 10 about the status of their application.

All sessions will have live captioning and all but the preconference will be recorded. If you require additional accommodations or have any other questions, please contact us at info at clel.org<mailto:info at clel.org>. Thank you so much again for everything you do to support early literacy -- we look forward to seeing everyone October 6-8!
