See what last year's attendees had to say...

LiblearnX provided me a network of colleagues to use as a resource and gave me an opportunity to learn about a variety of management/leadership and creative strategies to implement in my library system.


The library profession is constantly changing, and frequent conferences and continuing education opportunities are essential for keeping up with the trends and permanent changes.
