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 April 4, 2024 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. The keynote speaker will be Jessica Anne Bratt, Deputy Director of the Grand Rapids Public Library and author of Let’s Talk About Race in Storytimes. Jessica Anne Bratt has traveled nationwide to speak on antibias education. In her keynote, “Let’s Talk About Race: Working with Youth,” she will address how to incorporate racial justice and DEIA principles in library programs and service for children, tweens, and teens.
