NYLA 2022 Annual Conference
& Trade Show - Back to The Future!
Wednesday, November 2nd - Saturday, November 5th
Saratoga Springs, NY
The NYLA Annual Conference will take place Wednesday, November 2nd – Saturday, November 5th at the Saratoga Springs City Center in Saratoga Springs.
Message from NYLA President, Beth Merkle
It is an exciting time for our library association and we are optimistic about NYLA’s future – and the future of our members and members' libraries. The past two years have taught us that change is inevitable and humbling and that our strength is in coming together to rethink, rework, and reinvent what we have known.Together we have weathered the storm. Together in Saratoga Springs, we will get back to something we used to do all the time – thinking about the future:
- Thinking “what’s next?” with enthusiasm
- Taking the lessons from the pandemic and the injustices and inequities it has laid bare and moving forward on a better path
- Bringing many voices to the table – virtual or literal – and listening without judgment
- Seeing the infinite possibilities instead of the inside of the boxes that we put ourselves and others in
Let’s get back to that. Let’s get… Back to the Future.
