American Library Association Announces LibLearnX Will Be Virtual
From the American Library Association:
The American Library Association’s Executive Board announced today that LibLearnX: The Library Learning Experience scheduled for January 21-24, 2022, in San Antonio, Texas, will take place virtually.
“Given the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and surge of its variants coupled with the size, scope and location of LibLearnX, it is necessary to cancel the in-person portion of the event,” said ALA President Patricia “Patty” Wong. “As such, the Executive Board voted to transition the in-person portion of LLX in January 2022 to a virtual-only conference.”
LibLearnX, ALA’s all-new January event, is a member-focused conference designed to motivate, inspire, and engage discussions that will shape the future of libraries and their communities. LibLearnX will feature active and applied learning, networking opportunities for library professionals, and celebrations of the positive impact libraries have on society.
Registration for Virtual LibLearnX opens on Oct. 15, 2021.
