This year, for the eleventh year in a row, the Library Symposium is offering a professional development opportunity for school library personnel in the English Sector of Quebec (both the public and private sectors). In addition to school library personnel, many of their educational partners (consultants, school and board-level administrators, etc) are also invited to take part.
This year’s theme is “Embracing Change”.
This year’s keynotes will be Anita Brooks Kirkland (writer, presenter and consultant, specializing in the areas of information and digital literacy and leadership for the school library learning commons, Chair of Canadian School Libraries, and former President of the Ontario Library Association) and Jennifer Brown (a teacher librarian at a dynamic K-8 school in the Peel District School Board in Ontario). Other sessions include a session by Mona Greenbaum on sexual and gender diversity, a presentation by Educational Consultants from the EMSB, LBPSB, and SWLSB on the new Quebec Sexual Education program. As well as sessions by CBC Curio, SORA/Overdrive, Cantook Station and Quebec Reading Connection. As always, there will be presentations by a local bookstore, as well as by local Quebec library personnel, and their educational partners that will showcase ways in which Quebec school libraries, and their personnel, can use new methods and technology to offer more modern services and improve collaboration.
