Ever been to an online conference? This is the time to give it a try! Amigos Library Services is presenting an all-day, online conference on how libraries can go green on Wednesday, October 7th:

All you need is a computer, Adobe Flash, and speakers. You can come and go throughout the day!

We’ll be discussing topics like:

Keynote speaker, Florence Mason, will kick off the conference with her talk “Going Green” Successfully. She brings her many years of expertise with libraries, government organizations, and corporations on library building issues, library long range planning, library training, and other issues related to the management of library and information services.
