We are excited to have Jackson Gillman coming to the NELA Conference (cosponsored by VLA) in Burlington on Monday, October 3. He will be presenting a program on Rudyard Kipling in Vermont.
Jackson wanted me to pass along that while in VT, he would be willing to present programs at Vermont libraries who are interested. If he has more than one program he can also lower the travel costs to libraries.
His web site is: http://www.jacksongillman.com/ if you are interested in contacting him about the many programs in his repertoire.
The new Vermont Library Association Conference website is up and running! Thanks to Sam Maskell!!! It’s time to print out the registration form and fill it out. Early registration prices are good through April 1 and it promises to be a conference that we’ll be talking about for a long time to come. Our keynoter is infamous for having people walk out on his lectures. We can’t wait to hear what he has to say! And please fill in the workshop sheet and return it as well. It helps us to know which rooms to use for what workshops. You can always change your mind the day of the conference.
Register now before the conference fills up!
