Registration is now open for the WLA Annual Conference, Better Together @ 125!
Let's celebrate 125 years of WLA! Our state library association makes us "better together" - and we've been at it for over a century. This year's milestone conference provides us many opportunities to come together for one united goal: to serve the residents of Wisconsin.
As you prepare for the conference, be sure to read our One Book, One Conference book, Meet Me Halfway: Milwaukee Stories, by Jennifer Morales. You will have an opportunity to both discuss the book on Thursday and meet Jennifer at a session on Friday. Through programs, keynotes, social gatherings and chance encounters, we hope you will be inspired to start our 126th year with strength and purpose.
We hope this year's conference will reinvigorate your enthusiasm about the power of stories to bring us together. Learn more about the featured speakers, events and keynotes on the conference website.
