Step Up and Join us for our 2021 Annual Conference!

We are BACK!

OELMA Conference is on and in person! For the first time in over a year the librarians of Ohio are finally able to get back together for a day of exciting professional development opportunities! 

The date is set for October 9, 2021! It will be a one day conference but we already have some great things lined up including graphic novelist Derf Backderf, creator behind My Friend Dahmer, Trashed, and most recently Kent State: Four Dead in Ohio. Dhonielle Clayton, author of The Belles and Tiny Pretty Things (now a Netflix series!) and COO of the nonprofit organization We Need Diverse Books, will also be joining us virtually at the conference. In addition to several large sessions with some exciting speakers, there will be 16 concurrent sessions by librarians for librarians! These sessions have been really popular opportunities for professional development at the conference and we are excited to be able to hold them in person again! The conference committees are so excited to be planning an in-person event and we hope you are as excited as we are to finally be back together and working toward building better school library programs in Ohio!
