AspenCat Regional Workshops — Coming to a Service Area Near You!

Bringing training right to your back yard!

We will be offering the regional workshops on a variety of different dates and locations to best accommodate AspenCat member libraries all over the state. We did our best to find dates and locations that would work well for everyone’s schedules and we hope to see lots of you there for a fun, focused afternoon of learning.

This year’s workshops will be shorter, have more focused content, and more breaks sprinkled throughout. These workshops should provide a good breadth of different topics that should be useful for AspenCat library staff in all areas of service.

The workshops are free of cost to you and CLiC will be providing lunch and light breakfast snacks. We will try to accommodate dietary restrictions to the best of our ability, however if you have a very specialized diet, we recommend that you bring along your own lunch and snacks.

All workshops start at their respective locations at 10AM and run until about 2PM. Dates and locations are listed below, for reference. When registering, you’ll be required to pick ONE location.
