Who Are We?

The Recharge Committee is a group of Chicagoland librarians interested in creating learning opportunities for our fellow library workers. Formerly RLA-CE (Reference Librarian Association Continuing Education), this group began more than 25 years ago as part of the North Suburban Library System. While our name has changed, our mission remains the same: to provide engaging, inspiring, and meaningful continuing education programs featuring area librarians and library staff who share their unique expertise and encourage us all.
