Virtual Conference

8.30 to 3.30

Reading is the key that opens doors to many good things in life. Reading shaped my dreams, and more reading helped me make my dreams come true.

- Ruth Bader Ginsberg

In partnership with the National Education Summit

This virtual conference will be a fitting end to a year in which we have celebrated sixty years of the School Library Association of Victoria. We also celebrate the extraordinary ability of school libraries to be responsive and flexible during a year when school libraries have undoubtedly demonstrated their worth.

Featuring special guests, researchers, creators and school library practitioners, this conference will explore big picture ideas and examples of best practice in light of the powerful way school libraries foster a reading culture.
