Two awards are given annually. The first is the New Member Spring Conference Scholarship. It is given to a new member of our profession. The second is the Lisa C. Wemett Spring Conference Scholarship. It is given to a highly motivated established librarian who has had a significant impact on youth and youth services in her/his community
The planning committee’s goal with this year’s theme, Libraries are for Everyone, is to help our fellow youth library professionals find trends, practices and programs that will work for them, their library and their communities. We have a great lineup of programs ready for those new to the profession as well as seasoned librarians, from forming community partnerships to grant writing to STEM and STEAM programs, and much more!
