Registration is now open for the 2016 annual Library Journal Directors' Summit, December 1 - 2 at the Sacramento Public Library, Sacramento, CA.
About the Event
This year’s event will focus on sustainability in its most expansive sense. Attendees and expert presenters will grapple with how to use this vital institution—the library—as a driver of broad-based sustainability to ensure a robust local future for the library and the community it serves, in the face of historic challenges from climate warming, political swings, and rapidly changing demographics. Reserve your complementary place today and be part of this elite group of leaders.
Set in Sacramento in partnership with Sacramento Public Library, led by the innovative Rivkah Sass, LJ's 2006 Librarian of the Year, this high-engagement event will tap on innovators in corporate environments who are reinventing their businesses' approach to deep sustainability. It will also explore library-led strategies to design a more dynamic, flexible, and responsive future—one that's sustainable for libraries and their cities and towns large and small.
In its eighth year, this intimate two-day think tank gathers 100+ library leaders and strategic thinkers from beyond libraries to rethink, reengage, and reposition their libraries as futureproof, and primary drivers of futureproof communities.
More information about the program and presenters will be available soon but don’t wait, register today. We’ll update you with program and tour announcements as information becomes available.
“The summit was direct, efficient, full of content and very much worth the time away from the office.”— Alan Kirk Gray, Darien Library (CT)
“This was as useful to me as a whole week of ALA. No choices between sessions, committee work, lost time, etc. — just relevant, detailed presentations from people who are at the top of the field. It was great to learn and share with other attendees but the single best part was the consistently high quality of the presentations.” Alan Smith, Florence County Library (SC)
