CALCON, the annual conference of the Colorado Association of Libraries, is September 13-15, 2018 in Loveland. The event features keynote speakers, sessions, lightning talks, vendor exhibits, and after-hours activities. This year’s theme is “Ignite the Magic”. Visit CALCON18 to view full event details.
As in previous years, the Colorado State Library is pleased to support CALCON18 in multiple ways. We are sponsoring keynote speaker Dr. Isabel Hawkins, an astronomer at the Exploratorium in San Francisco, who will speak about broadening the participation of underserved groups in the sciences.
In addition, several CSL staff members will present sessions throughout the conference, ranging in topics from User Experience (UX) and photography to procrastination and collaboration. See the schedule below for details.
Finally, we are excited to showcase service animals at our exhibit hall booth. Hearing Dogs for the Deaf and Veteran’s Puppy for Life will visit on Thursday, and Dogs for the Blind will be with us on Friday. We hope you will stop by to say hi and meet a friendly pooch.
