WLA Virtual Conference

Mark your calendars for the first ever WLA Virtual Conference on Tuesday, January 14, 2020! This all-day event will bring together library professionals from around Washington and the world to build connections and envision the future of libraries.

By holding this conference online, we’re able to lower the barriers of attending and presenting that many face due to limited staffing, funding, or location. Stay tuned for more information about the schedule, keynotes, registration, and opportunities for group viewings. Registration will open in November 2019.

Now Seeking Session Proposals!

Virtual Conference session proposals are due November 4. There are limited program slots for this all-day conference, and so we are looking for innovators in the fields of Marketing & Communications, Professional Development, and Emergent Technologies to propose topics tailored to the needs of small and rural libraries. Content will be relevant to all types of libraries, though special consideration will be given to programs relevant to small and rural libraries.
