Special Events


Let’s Chat Breakout Sessions

Less formal than a breakout session, but more structured than an unconference, Let’s Chat sessions are a chance to discuss important library topics. The topics and moderators have been selected for you, but you get to choose your participation level. Jump in and share your thoughts, opinions and experiences – or sit back and take some great notes about what others are doing in the library community. Moderators will share what they are doing and why and then open the floor for interaction by the audience. Add your two cents and Let’s Chat!
