Fall 2020 Virtual Social Hours

This fall, MLStEP Chapter Liaisons will be holding virtual (and casual) social hours where any interested students and early-career library workers can drop in and chat. These will be scheduled in coordination with upcoming chapter meetings.

You do not need to be a member of MLStEP or a specific chapter to attend either the chapter meeting/conference or the social hour. In addition, registration for the chapter meetings is free!

As more of these events are confirmed, we will be updating this list with details on how/when to attend and how to register. Please check back on this post or on our Facebook/Twiter.
