CSL Share & Learn: Durango


The Colorado State Library is coming to an area near you!

In 2017-18, consultants from the State Library will be traveling to several regions of the state for an event we’re calling CSL Share & Learn, which combines professional development with time to share with colleagues. This event is perfect for anyone working in libraries, museums, or archives. The first CSL Share & Learn will be at the Durango Public Library, September 21-22, 2017. We hope you’ll join us!

What can you expect at CSL Share & Learn?

CSL Share & Learn is an event for all library, museum, and archive staff, with multiple sessions that can be attended separately or in combination. The longer sessions include time for learning and sharing in a casual setting. The shorter sessions are opportunities to meet and discuss library issues with State Librarian Gene Hainer. The agenda below has more details about each session. Feel free to mix and match to suit your needs.
