Scholarship Opportunity

Because of a generous donor, we are excited to announce a scholarship for parents of young children. We believe that the Books for Young Readers Symposium is beneficial not only for teachers and librarians, but for parents. It is critically important for parents to know about good books for their children. This scholarship has been established to aid in covering part of the cost of the conference. To inquire please email us at

Substitutions and Cancellations

A $25 fee will be assessed for each refund requested. All refunds must be requested in writing. At any time you may arrange for a substitute to come in your place without penalty.
