Reminder to Sign Up For the 5th Annual HWA Librarians' Day at StokerCon 2021

I am reposting the initial announcement about Librarians' Day. This is a full day continuing education event for ALL LIBRARY WORKERS. We have bestselling authors, reviewers, library workers from all over the country, and more. The focus is horror but the information is about collection development, readers' advisory, and programming. And it is only $75. Details below:

Today I am announcing the lineup for the 5th Annual StokerCon Librarians Day. This year Librarians' Day is included in the price of attending the full StokerCon. For $75 [which is usually the price for just Librarians' Day] you will have access to all programming from May 20-23. 

But specifically, Librarians' Day is set. The schedule is below. Click here to signup today.

And finally, a thank you to returning sponsors NoveList and LibraryReads.

I really hope to see you there. We have worked in tons of networking time, breaks, and of course, learning.
