CLEL offers webinars, member networking opportunities, and other professional development throughout the year. Most of these are free and open to anyone interested in early literacy and library services to youth and families. CLEL also offers an annual conference each fall at an affordable price. One of the CLEL member benefits is access to the recorded archive of our webinars. Not a member yet? Join today!

Accessibility is priority at CLEL. All of our larger, recorded webinars do provide captioning. If you need additional services to enjoy any of our events, please contact us at
