Association of Independent School Librarians

Every year, an intrepid group of volunteer independent school librarians gets together to form a conference committee.  From this committee a truly wonderful event occurs: the Annual Conference. Our conferences have a distinctive format which reflects the informal nature of our organization.  Each conference, in addition to offering speakers or demonstrations, showcases the educational and cultural resources of the area. Often workshops are “on wheels” for visits to schools, museums, and cultural events.  There is time to talk and explore. 

The culmination of each conference is the Skip Anthony Memorial Lecture which honors the memory of the first editor of The Library Connection.  Past speakers at the Skip Anthony dinner include Naomi Shihab Nye, Terry Kay, and Terry Gross.

If you are interested in hosting a conference, please contact the AISL Board and include a rough outline of your planned conference.
