OLA/OSLA Ken Haycock Super Conference Grant
Dr. Ken Haycock established the Chancellor Group Conference Grant to honour the founders of the Association for Teacher-Librarianship in Canada. It was subsequently transferred to the Canadian Library Association (CLA). A travel grant of $500 was to provide support to newly qualified teacher-librarians (the “TL”) to attend the annual conference of the CLA. The funds were transferred to OLA in 2016 after CLA’s dissolution. OLA is now proud to provide the grant to support new TL’s to attend the OLA Super Conference.
