  • Speaker Appreciation Rate – this discounted rate is for Ohio library community speakers.

  • Retiree Rate: This reduced registration rate is intended for those who are fully retired.
  • No confirmation of registration will be sent. View the Event Roster on OLC’s website to confirm your registration. Rosters are updated weekly.
