Libraries around the world face similar responsibilities and challenges as they continue to support their patrons with services, programming, and community connection. Learn how you can tackle these challenges and more at LibLearnX. 

LibLearnX will include opportunities to:

  • explore the possible futures for libraries, your career, and your communities when you participate in collaborative and informal education programs.
  • hear from inspiring thought leaders and celebrity speakers in the LLX Studio.
  • visit the LLX Marketplace with industry-expert exhibitors highlighting the latest products, titles, technology, and services; and solution-driven discussions and trend updates in the Ideas Xchange and ShopTalk sessions. 
  • Build your personal network and make new connections and celebrate with peers and colleagues at the award celebrations.
