The first PA Forward Information Literacy Summit will be held in State College at the Pennsylvania State University University Park campus on Wednesday, July 24, 2013.
PA Forward, a Pennsylvania Library Association (PaLA) state initiative, supports libraries in helping Pennsylvanians improve their essential literacy skills. PA Forward focuses on five critical literacies - Basic, Information, Civic & Social, Health, and Financial.
It is through the PA Forward Information Literacy Committee that we are able to bring librarians together to have conversations, to collaborate and to come to shared understandings.
The theme of this year’s program is Building Bridges through Curriculum and Collaboration.
The day-long event will begin at 8:30 a.m. with registration and end at 3:00 p.m. at the conclusion of the final breakout session. The program will include morning keynote sessions as well as several sessions that will occur in the afternoon.
