Shhh is Out! It’s a Children’s and Youth Blow Out

Storytime’s a little stale?
Want to revive your teen life? 
Need a little excitement between the pages?

Then it’s time for a change. Join us on November 14th, 9:00a.m.- 4:00 p.m., for our first ever, all day Children’s and Youth Blow Out at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.  

The Blow Out is a single day one-of-a-kind conference, for children and youth workers in library settings. This event will feature poster sessions – presented by our peers, a Guerilla Storytime, live demonstrations, giveaways and supporting organizations will be in attendance. It will also feature speakers such as Linda Bailey and a presentation by the Author’s Booking Service.

A one stop shop for all things children and youth! Participants will have the opportunity to network, pick up tips and tricks for successful programming, re-charge collections and be exposed to great work being conducted throughout other library systems.

This event is in conjunction with the amazing, fantastic Toronto International Book Fair! You’ll have access to their programming throughout the day – including Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid), Jim Gaffigan (Food: a love story), Kevin Sylvester (Neil Flambe and the Tokyo Treasure) and so much more!
