 2023 CONFERENCE THEME

Built To Last

Libraries, Library Allies, and the Meaning of Life

The (mostly) women who started Friends of Libraries in 1922 weren't thinking about what their groups would be doing more than 100 years later. But Friends -- and now Trustees/Commissions and Foundations -- of Libraries have proven to be built to last: durable, community-based, crucial for libraries, and warm communities in and of themselves. We will be exploring together how we can continue the building and leading of our organizations to last another 100 years. What are the best practices, the behind-the scenes moves and how to's of sustaining enthusiasm and on point work?

Your registration will include a gourmet continental breakfast, catered sit-down lunch and conference materials.

Please consider supporting this conference by becoming a "Table Sponsor". By doing so, you are displaying that you value libraries and the people who advocate for them.
