CoALA invites all to join us in a very special one-day CoALA Summit. The event will focus on how libraries - but more importantly, how librarians - can transform the communities they serve. ALA President-Elect Julie Todaro, Dean of Library Services at Austin Community College, will lead an engaging, hands-on, full-day workshop on Friday, April 8, centering on specific issues of interest and concern identified in advance by attendees.

"We can design and build the best library environment, assemble the perfect resources, make the resources accessible, and create services for the breadth of clientele, but the most important element in this process is the expertise within library structures and processes… the expertise that connects the constituents to what they want and need, assists our patrons in their transformations and works with our communities to assist in their transformation."

“Although we have a rich heritage of our profession being the consummate supporting profession, I see our profession as one that leads. Libraries lead, library workers lead and library supporters lead. We lead from front lines, from the middle and the top, and we lead in our field as well as in related fields”

- Julie Todaro, 2016 ALA President-elect

Participants will learn how to position themselves as experts with solutions for their communities and will identify strategies to address issues specific to their libraries and communities. The event is relevant to all types of libraries. Hope to see you there!

Registration includes morning and afternoon snacks. Lunch on your own, with Summit hosts leading attendees to nearby dining venues
