Teacher Librarian Day 2023: Critical Conversations

Teacher Librarian Day 2023: Critical Conversations

TLD 2023 Critical Conversations: How do we live and love together in a society with differing perspectives, beliefs, and biases?

Teacher Librarian Day returns on February 24th, 2023.

We will be in-person again at the History Colorado Center in Denver, CO, as well as a satellite site at the Museum of the West in Grand Junction, CO.

In Denver the format will be much the same as previous years with speakers in the morning and breakouts with those speakers in the afternoon. In Grand Junction, speakers will be streamed and local educational organizations will provide in-person breakouts in the afternoon.

Our theme, Critical Conversations, is meant to be an attempt at tackling one of the most prevalent questions in society today: How do we live and love together in a society with differing perspectives, beliefs, and biases? There is no easy answer, but it takes critical conversations in order to make progress towards understanding.

Join us and help each other take on topics deeply important to today’s educators. Using the vast collections of primary sources at the Library of Congress as well as local historical collections, discover the stories of peoples from diverse locations, circumstances, and walks of life.

Come to learn about the Library of Congress and its 60 million+ digitized primary sources and teaching resources available to the public, including programs like their teachers resources, Labs, World Digital Library, the Veterans History Project, and congress.gov.
