    LibLearnX: The Library Learning Experience is back, and this time it's happening in person and in New Orleans, January 27-30, 2023!

    At ALA's newest conference offering, the focus is on innovative learning. You'll have access to more than 120 education sessions on a variety of topics presented in formats to match your individual learning style and objectives.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to the short, information packed, 20 minute Shop Talks which fit both my TikTok affected attention span and love of being introduced to lots of different things at once.

    Find a style and topic that resonates with you in the full list of sessions on the LibLearnX website.

    Also at LibLearnX, you can celebrate with colleagues at award ceremonies; hear from authors and thought leaders; and interact with trend-setting exhibitors-all the exciting features you can always count on at ALA conferences. And there will be plenty of opportunities to recharge and connect with friends new and old.

    Register before January 15 to save and join us in this exciting experience.

    We hope to see you there!
