The 2021 ALA Annual Conference (June 23 — 29) is coming up! The online conference will offer educational programs, special author events and social networking opportunities. Headliners include Nikole Hannah-Jones, Isabel Wilkerson and President Barack Obama. Register now!
The American Library Association (ALA) recently held its annual conference in New Orleans. As expected, the food was fantastic, the people of New Orleans were amazingly welcoming and the content of the conference was spectacular. We spent several days soaking up ideas for programming, learning about new authors and networking with our fellow librarians.
As the days get longer, the time you must wait until the ALA Annual Conference is getting shorter. While headliners like Michelle Obama and Viola Davis may be excitement enough, there will be plenty of can't-miss sessions related to programming, too.
