Fall Conference 2018

Thanks to our hosts at Trinity Lutheran Church in the Town of Liberty, near Manitowoc, WI for a wonderful day of fellowship and education at our Fall Confernce on September 22, 2018.   Church librarians enjoyed learning from each other and from presenter Rev. Nathan Pope.  The Lancer Singers from Manitowoc Lutheran High School gave a talented performance at the afternoon session.  Northwestern Publishing House provided a large book/media display for librarians to fill their shelves with new book purchases. Please join us for future conferences.
