Statewide Conference on Opioids in our Communities - one month to register!

Happy July, everyone!  Summer is finally here, but it will be gone before you know it. Don’t miss your chance to register for one of the upcoming Opioids in Communities, Libraries in Response events taking place around Ohio:

Monday, Aug. 6th at Bossard Memorial Library in Gallipolis
Tuesday, Aug. 7th at Sinclair Community College Conference Center in Dayton
Wednesday, Aug. 8th at Owens Community College in Findlay
Thursday, Aug. 9th at the Hilton Garden Inn in Twinsburg

Bracketed by a keynote from author Sam Quinones (author of DREAMLAND: The True Tale of America’s Opiate Epidemic) and a closing presentation from Dr. Meghan Harper (Libraries Lending Hope), each day-long event will also feature local perspectives and resources. We hope to provide an opportunity for education, discussion, listening, and learning centered around the opioid epidemic and the role that libraries can play in response to it.

There’s only one month left to register for any of these events.  The cost is $45, which includes a light breakfast and a buffet lunch. 

**Don’t forget that July 1st marks the start of a new fiscal year for many organizations (which often means new funding might be available), so if you haven’t asked yet about attending, now might be a really good time.

For more information, and to register, click here:

These events are made possible thanks to a grant from the federal Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), awarded by the State Library of Ohio.
