On the Conference Theme, Call for Proposals

Jane CorryOLA President Jane Corry on her conference theme, “Tell Your Story”:

“One of my favorite storytime books is Wait! I want to tell you a story by Tom Willans. It’s about a wombat that tells a story to a tiger to avoid being eaten. I like it because it’s really about the power of story. Stories can make us forget that we’re hungry or tired. They console us when we’re sad. Our stories are what make us who we are, as individuals, as institutions and as a society in general. It’s what connects us to each other. They’re how we learn. Basic and powerful.”

We would love to hear your story. Submit a proposal before September 30th or stay tuned for poster proposal information in November.
