Teacher Librarian Day
This highly anticipated cornerstone event is held early each year. Typically, the Teacher Librarian Day (TLD) conference hosts 200 educators at the History Colorado Center. The day consists of a suite of short, carefully prepared talks, demonstrations, and performances on a varying range of subjects to foster learning, inspiration, and wonder - and to provoke conversations that matter. To make the event easier to attend, Teaching with Primary Sources-MSU Denver pays for up to 100 attendee substitutes.

This year's theme was Voices. From our students to our mentors, the everlasting voices throughout each of our lives give us reason for empathy, perspective, and rational understanding of the world around us. Recognizing every voice and developing these skills in our students through primary sources as windows of the past help our communities to become more civically minded, thoughtful, and curious.
The morning of TLD offered inspiring short TED-style talks focusing on innovative ways to use primary sources in the K-16 classroom. In addition, the afternoon of TLD featured hour-long breakout sessions from a number of our speakers as well as educational partners in Colorado.
