Final Reminder - TLD 2012: Primary Passion

Teacher Librarian Day

Don’t miss out! February 3rd is the day! Teacher Librarian Day 2012 will be held in one of our favorite venues: the King Center at Auraria Campus, and we still have a number of seats left. This year’s TLD will once again see us adopting the wildly successful TED format.

This worked well for us last year, but we’ve taken this model and revamped it. Based on numerous, helpful suggestions, we’ve cut down the number of speakers and allowed more time for interacting and collaborating amongst attendees. We also have some special surprises up our sleeves that you definitely do not want to miss! Register now to reserve your seat! Many speakers have been confirmed, including:

Colorado State Historian – Bill Convery
Author & Public Speaker – Jeff Vankooten - Jeff's Website
Special Collections Librarian at the Denver Public Library – Wendel Cox
The Primary Source Librarian – Mary Johnson - Mary's Blog
Teen Tech Guru – Dave Moyer –  Dave's Website
2011 Colorado Teacher of the Year Michelle Pearson
Director of the Council on 21st Century Learning Stevan Kalmon
Register for Teacher Librarian Day 2012 in Denver, CO  on Eventbrite
