Welcome the the FONCPL Spring Virtual Conference!

Friends of North Carolina Public Libraries is proud to present this virtual conference. Like many of you, the FONCPL Board would have preferred to resume the regional gathers that have been offered in the past. When COVID restrictions are finally lifted, we hope to go back to that format. In the mean time, we hope that you will find the presentations available today interesting and informative.

Below, you will find links to the welcoming message and to the 10 mini-workshops that our presenters have generously provided. The welcoming message premiers on April 10 at 10:00am EDT. All of the workshops premier at 10:15am. Click on the title of the presentation to go to a page with some information about the presenter, handouts (where provided), and a link to the FONCPL YouTube channel with the presentation. Return to this page to select another workshop.

Thank you for participating in the Spring Virtual Conference.
