Stronger Together

Shaped by unique experiences, relationships, and personalities, it takes a medley of individuals to make a library operate and thrive. Everyone dedicated to library service provides a voice layering the choral hum of the daily symphony taking place within (and outside) our walls. This year’s theme, Stronger Together, demonstrates how libraries leverage collaboration, teamwork and technology to foster the resilience and well-being of an entire community. Libraries are stronger together when everyone’s voice is represented, heard, and valued.

The 2023 Convention & Expo encourages exploration of topics relevant to all facets of library service welcoming library staff, friends, and trustees to a communal table. This event is an opportunity to reconnect to our shared purpose, explore new ways to serve, and collaborate on best practices. Join library professionals from around the state for insight, ideas, and inspiration.
