The Colorado Association of Libraries Annual Conference is Colorado’s premier event for library staff from libraries of all types throughout the state. Attendees learn from one another and hear from current experts in trending fields. Additionally, participants can meet with vendors to check out their latest products and services and attend networking events to create new contacts and strengthen relationships.

Get inspired with your colleagues at CALCON18!

This year we are excited to bring you an innovative program containing dynamic keynote presentations, general workshops, an opening exhibits reception, luncheon events and more! Admission to the general sessions is included in your full conference registration. If you registered for one or two days only, the general sessions for those days are included.

Keynote: Isabel Hawkins, PhD

We are excited to welcome astronomer, educator, and bilingual podcast host Isabel Hawkins. Originally from Córdoba, Argentina, Isabel spent 20 years as an astrophysics researcher and science educator at UC Berkeley’s Space Sciences Laboratory. She joined the Exploratorium in 2009 to work on cultural astronomy projects including Spanish/English live webcasts from Chichen Itzá, Yucatán, on Maya astronomy and from Casper, Wyoming on the 2017 total solar eclipse. She has forged cross-cultural collaborations with indigenous knowledge holders, educators, and scientists to enhance participation by diverse communities in science.
