NYCC is teaming up (yet again) with The New York Public Library to host a number of panels geared towards professional librarians and educators on Thursday, October 5th. This is a free, ticketed event for librarians, teachers, and educators - although you'll need a "Professional" badge.
For all those who can, I hope you'll join me at the following panel. If you can make it, please stop by before or after the panel to say hello.
