Here’s what past attendees have said
about their Annual Conference experience!
“I feel that the ALA Annual Conference is the best "bang" for your conference dollar, especially if you take advantage of early bird pricing. There are so many top quality guest speakers and so many conference sessions to choose from that you are bound to find something of interest.”
“The comradery between librarians from all types of libraries from all places in the US (and the world!) is restorative to us when we are mired in our own community problems and daily concerns. Learning that we are not alone in those situations and learning new ways to look at them is a big gift.”
“The exhibit hall gave me access to so many ideas, authors, and books. It blew my mind! ”
