We need YOU to attend and present at the annual IASL conference!

April is just around the corner, and we're gearing up for the IASL conference.  This year, we're celebrating the connections between technology and literacy, raised to the power of teacher librarians. And we want YOU to register to attend and submit proposals for sessions.

On April 3-4, join recent Library Journal Movers & Shakers Michelle Luhtala and John Schumacher for two days of learning and sharing at the Ramada Tropics Resort and Conference Center in Des Moines!


In addition to our invited speakers, one of the best things about the IASL conference is hearing from librarians, administrators, and teachers around the state about great works, important questions, and new ideas for quality literacy and technology programming. We invite you to submit your proposals for concurrent sessions and lightning talks now! Conference attendees appreciate sessions on a variety of topics, including:

  • Reading, writing, and research strategies and lessons
  • Interdisciplinary projects
  • Intellectual freedom 
  • Teacher leadership and advocacy
  • Collection development
  • other inspired ideas

Submit your proposal by February 1 and you'll be notified by February 8.
