A Library State of Mind October 22-24, 2015 will be at the Peoria Civic Center in Peoria.

Share your best ideas and work with the Illinois library community by presenting a poster session at the 2015 Illinois Library Conference in Peoria. Poster sessions will be held October 22-24 in the exhibit hall.

More details on what is needed to apply can be found on the conference site. Find the link in the Menu on the right that says Poster Sessions where you will find a description of what you need to provide and an application form.

The deadline for submitting an application is July 1, 2015. Applicants will be notified of the committee’s decision by the end of July.

We hope to see some quality presentations by school librarians and/or students working on their school library degree.
