Time is running out to register for the 2016 Annual Membership Meeting! Last year we held our Annual Membership Meeting in June for the first time and it was a huge success! So this year, we’re going back to Farmingdale Public Library in June to host this year’s event. Our business meeting will be followed by a keynote speaker. In addition, we’ll have Lightening Rounds from local library innovators, who will share new ideas with us.
Please be sure to mark your calendar, register, and join us for this free event. CEU credits will be awarded to all attendees. LILRC members and non-members alike are welcomed and encouraged to attended.
Keynote Speaker: David Vinjamuri,
