The annual Kids Are Customers Too! Conference is back!
This youth services conference is an opportunity for library staff working with children, tweens, and teens in public libraries and school media centers throughout the state to meet new people, renew contacts, and learn the latest information affecting the diverse field in which they work. Join us at the Miller Branch of the Howard County Library System on March 30, 2023, from 9:30am – 4:00pm as we feature a day’s worth of presenters sharing fresh ideas and practical tips that can be applied directly to day-to-day youth programming and services.
There will be two Breakout Sessions with presentations to choose from. If you would like to learn more about what will be presented, please visit https://sites.google.com/view/kidsarecustomers/home. Lunch will be provided, please select your lunch option while registering!
The keynote speaker will be Dr. Jamie Campbell Naidoo, the Interim Director and Foster-EBSCO Endowed Professor at The University of Alabama School of Library and Information Studies. Dr. Naidoo’s research interests include library services to diverse populations and diversity in children's and YA media (print and digital). He will be addressing how library staff can best serve LGBTQAI+ youth of various ages and their families.
