The CLA Conference Committee plans for an in-person conference May 6-8 in Pasadena while also contingency planning for a virtual conference. The conference theme is “Renaissance: The Library Renewal” - think about rebirth, renewal, change and working through challenges! We’re looking for a diverse slate of programs that will speak to CLA members who work in all kinds of libraries, communities and capacities. We encourage submissions that prioritize the voices of people who have been traditionally been marginalized, such as people who identify as BIPOC, immigrant, LGBTQ, differently abled/disabled.
