LibLearnX: The Library Learning Experience (Jan. 21-24) to Take Place Virtually–Registration Opens Fri., Oct. 15

(via ALA)

The American Library Association’s Executive Board has announced that LibLearnX: The Library Learning Experience, originally scheduled for San Antonio, Texas, will take place virtually. The meeting will still last from January 21 to 24 (Friday-Monday).

“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 Friday, October 15. For more information on the meeting, please go here.
