The Programming Librarian Interest Group (PLIG) is a Member Initiative Group of the American Library Association. The group's mission is to bring together all types of librarians interested in public programming for their patrons.
Programming is an intrinsically essential library service. The PLIG will help librarians advocate for programming at their own institutions, share program ideas and successful strategies, and provide a space for professional development by librarians who do programming officially and unofficially as part of their job duties. The group will also be a vehicle for ALA members to connect more dynamically with ALA’s Public Programs Office.
The PLIG meets at least twice per year, at the ALA Annual Conference and ALA Midwinter Meeting. Membership is open to all ALA members. Connect with members on the PLIG Facebook group.
