Weekend Course 2017

Powered by Librarians

Lightbulb Moments LogoThe 2017 SLA weekend course – Lightbulb Moments: Powered by Librarians – will be run in association with CILIP YLG. It will be held over three days from 23–25 June 2017 at the Majestic Hotel in Harrogate, Yorkshire.

The course will celebrate the 80th anniversary of both the SLA and the CILIP Carnegie Medal, established in 1937.

Themes include self-esteem, mental health and reading; book awards and controversial books; visual literacy; e-resources; information literacy and practical reading promotions.

Special events include:

  • Chris Riddell, Children’s Laureate
  • Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Celebration Gala Dinner on Saturday night.

Plus a varied programme of optional sessions for school and public librarians.

NB We take staged payments but individual arrangements need to be made with the SLA office.
