OLA Supersoncerfence 2017 brand

The theme of OLA Superconference 2017: All In/Le tout pour tout

The OLA Superconference is almost here!

The theme of the 2017 edition is “All in. / Le tout pour le tout.”

As the organizers explain:

“We are a profession that welcomes all, supports all, serves all. We’re techies, readers, curators, storytellers, humanitarians. Our doors are open, our lights are on, we believe in what we do, and we aren’t holding back. More than ever, our enthusiasm, passion, commitment, and courage are needed.

The chips are down, but we’re not shying away from risks.

We are all in.

We know that a number of people from the Nova Scotia library community will be attending the conference. While you are there, consider attending the CFLA-FCAB Annual General Meeting on February 1. NSLA President, Cindy Elliott, will be there to represent our interests, and it would be great to have NSLA members and others from the region in attendance.

Launched in 2011 by author Dianne de las Casas, Picture Book Month is an international literacy initiative that celebrates the print picture book.

Every day in November, a picture book advocate publishes a post that shares their thoughts on the importance of picture books.  This year’s ‘champions’ include Adam Lehrhaupt, Kwame Alexander, Minh Le, and Laura Gehl.

Financial Literacy Month – November 2016

We know about digital literacyhealth literacy and numeracy, but do you know about ‘financial literacy’?
