A virtual day of professional development, networking, and inspiration for IHLS-member library leaders, staff, and trustees with a keynote by internationally renowned speaker R. David Lankes
THE MEMBER DAY PHILOSOPHY: At Illinois Heartland Library System, we believe that libraries are the cornerstones of healthy communities, and librarians are the keystones that allow them to stand. We also believe that librarians deserve opportunities for professional development and networking regardless of the sizes, budgets, and locations of their libraries.
To say "thank you" for the work you do in your towns, districts, schools and colleges, and institutions, we have developed Member Day, an annual conference exclusively for the library leaders, staff, and trustees of IHLS-member multi-type libraries. Usually an in-person event held in the center of our service area, this year's Member Day is virtual, enabling us to provide a safe and accessible way to continue to offer a free day of inspiration, relevant learning seminars, opportunities to share ideas with other library professionals, and—of course—to win prizes and have a little fun along the way.
This year's theme, Beyond All Limits, reminds us that we can overcome obstacles—whether they originate from within or without—and reach our goals when we climb our ladder rung by rung.
