October 26-27, 2016 | Leaving Library Services Behind: An E-forum on Essential Questions About Retirement
Hosted by the Retired Librarians Round Table
Let's face it. Many of us are afraid of retirement. We have so many questions that it is hard to know where to begin or who to ask. To address these concerns, the Retired Librarians Round Table will host a TLA e-forum October 26-27 aimed at putting aside fear and finding answers for many of the most common questions regarding planning for and making the most of your retirement. The e-forum format is similar to a town hall meeting or a panel discussion. Since the e-forum takes place over e-mail, you will have the freedom to ask questions, share your experiences, or just listen and lurk. We expect the forum to be populated by librarians from all areas of library service who are concerned about this issue. To be truly successful, we need subscribers who are retired as well as those who are just considering retirement. Over the course of two days, moderators will pose questions via e-mail to those who have signed up to participate to get the discussion going.

To join this new forum, please visit the registration page. Or, for step by step instructions, visit the Retired Librarians Round Table's Google Doc on the eForum.
