* Welcome to Lighting The Future

For the first time since 2000 the three major organisations for children's and schools' librarians are joining together in the year of the Olympics to hold another fantastic, inspiring, empowering conference for all those interested in young people, their reading and their education.

The overarching theme that has been discussed is the child in society, and has led to the streams of the workshops headed Libraries, Learning, Reading and Access & Opportunity.

You can also view details of our fantastic venue and the fees that have been set for the conference.
