Join us for this interactive workshop!

The library is an institution that serves everyone, and because of this libraries provide a welcoming environment for patrons that can quickly become a refuge. With this trending topic in mind CoPLA is excited to host a conference where experts will speak about serving the LGBTQ community and Spanish speakers, along with patrons experiencing homelessness and mental health issues. Join us for an informative day that will end with a group brainstorming session to digest all the new innovated ideas to help push you forward.

Lunch provided!
