2021 Annual Conference

How has your library responded to the disruption that COVID-19 has caused? What steps is it taking to increase awareness of systemic racism, social injustice, and other current issues? How has the past year forced you, your co-workers, and your colleagues to “think outside the box” while designing and implementing library services and programs? Breaking Down Barriers: Building Up Communities will explore how we as individuals and institutions can overcome challenges and think creatively.

This year's conference will be held virtually on the PheedLoop platform.
