22nd Annual Picture Book Read-In Early Bird Special 

SWON's Picture Book Read-In is a program for Collection Development staff, Children's Librarians, Teachers, Childcare Workers, in short, anyone who selects and/or reads books for children. We have thousands of recent titles (usually from the last two years) loaned to us for this event from six leading public library systems. Each attendee receives a guide listing all of the books. 

The day includes time for selecting and binge-reading picture books, discussing possible story time options with your peers and two presentations. Right now there is an Early Bird Special - receive $5 off your ticket price when you register before July 13th!


Picture Book Read-In 
$30 for employees of Supporting Member Institutions
$40 for members in our Ohio service area
$55 for everyone else

PCI Webinar - Understanding and Defending Digital Copyright in Your Library

Do copyright issues seem to pop up often in your Library? Many times, they are not addressed because people are leery of giving the wrong information. And how does copyright apply to your digital materials? In this informative webinar, we will discuss the main issues surrounding your digital materials and copyright. We’ll look at court cases, accessibility for all patrons (visual impairments and more), license agreements, and how you can advocate for the best access for your patrons. Digital materials including eBooks are here to stay, let’s also discuss how we can use the resources to their fullest, while not infringing on the authors’ rights.
