Leadership at Every Level: Fund-Protect-Empower

This year's conference will be in-person at the Oncenter in Syracuse, New York on November 6-9.

The time is now to recognize that all library workers are leaders! Let's work together across our sections and roundtables as we strive towards sustainable funding; empowering library workers to advocate for their libraries and the communities they serve; and protecting our workers and institutions from continued assaults on intellectual freedom. Our academic, public, school and special libraries, and the people that work and volunteer in them, are the mentors and protectors of the core values of our profession. Let's come together during our 2024 Annual Conference to not only network, but to support each other and continue growing and learning as leaders who show our communities that libraries are welcoming places for everyone, and that every story deserves to be heard!
