Summer Institute Right Around the Corner!

GLMA’s Summer Institute is only days away! I hope to see many of my Georgia colleagues down at beautiful Callaway Gardens as we “map out” our library practice for the coming school year. It is not too late to register – simply go to then scroll down on the main page until you see the link for Summer Institute Registration. It’s that easy! All of our sessions will take place at the Mountain Creek Inn. If you stay at the
facility, your room rate includes tickets to the Gardens.  Each concurrent session is scheduled to be 50 minutes long and the whole group sessions run between 45 minutes and 60 minutes. Take a look at our schedule and then make plans to be with us on June 18 and 19!
PS: If you absolutely cannot join us in person, keep your eyes out for an
announcement about some of our concurrent sessions being available as video webinars on the GLMA website! susan
