Annual Conference

Colorado Libraries for Early Literacy is committed to training and staff development.  We have a yearly conference to fill this need.  We provide workshops, keynotes and networking to anyone who is involved or wants to be involved with early literacy.  Past conferences have had information about brain research, working with the bilingual community, sensory storytimes and much more.  We encourage you to join us each year for an educational day!


The two-day CLEL conference for 2020 will be held virtually! We will host our first-ever leadership program and our wonderful workshop sessions on an online platform in October. 

Stay tuned for details. 


Our 2019 conference took place Friday, October 4, at the Arvada Center. Links to presenter content from this year and previous years can be found at the links below. More content from 2019 will be added as it is received by CLEL.
