Are You Coming to ARRTapalooza? I’ll be there with RA for All Swag!

On December 9th from 9:30 to 4:30 ARRT is hosting a fantastic 1 day RA training program at the 95th Street Branch of the Naperville Public Library.

This program is an amazing deal-- only $50 for members and $60 for non-members. We have nationally recognized RA experts, lunches included in your price, and everyone gets a copy our much anticipated YA Popular Fiction list. [It will also become available on NoveList after January 1.]

And we recently added Library Journal Mover & Shaker and the Director of Hillsboro Library in Oregon-- Stephanie Chase!!!! 

Yes, we are flying people in for this. I told you it was going to be good.

What I also love about this program is that when you go to our Eventbrite sign up page, you get to pick your top 5 break out session choices. Yes, we have made this a customizable experience. We have classes for everyone from the RA newbie to experts. You will be assigned 3 of your top 5 choices.

It is also a great networking opportunity as many of the top RA librarians in IL will be there, whether they are presenting or not. Everyone will have name tags, so feel free to go up to anyone. We are all there to improve our RA skills and talk books! Oh, I am getting so excited just thinking about it.

We have multiple payment options from credit card to mailing a check to even paying at the door. Head on over and sign up before the spots fill up-- and they will.

It is a great way to end the year and get you revved up for a great 2016 of service to leisure readers!

I am excited to be there as an attendee. And, I can’t wait to meet all of you. So seek me out and let’s chat. I will have RA for ALL swag to give away to everyone who I talk to.

This is also a great time to talk to me about coming to your library in 2016. My schedule is starting to fill up, but local appearances can be easily fit in. We can even talk about ways I can provide RA training to your staff without you having to close the library. It can be done!

And, If you book me to come to your library, you get an RA for All tote bag. You will see a few attendees at ARRTapalooza who have gotten their own bag because they have booked me already. Truth in advertising.

What are you waiting for? Sign up now. More details and links below.
