  1. Great list! Thank you!
    GA Children’s Book Awards and Conference on Children’s Literature, March 17-18, 2017
    Alabama School Librarians Association conference is in June, but they have not released dates yet.

  2. This year the New Hampshire School Library Media Association has partnered with the Christa McAuliffe Technology Conference (http://www.nhcmtc.org/) and will be presenting a day for librarians on Thursday, December 1, 2016. The conference runs November 29 – December 1st, 2016.

  3. This is an awesome resource! Do you have an updated version for 2017-2018? Or just anything past June 2017?
    Thanks!
