Online Guide to ALA Annual Conference for Programming Librarians
Angela Thullen | April 14, 2011
The American Library Association (ALA) Public Programs Office announced a new online resource for librarians who present cultural and community programs and events: the Programming Librarian’s Guide to Annual Conference. Part of Programming Librarian, with a conference calendar feature and consolidated listings of programs and events scheduled for the 2011 ALA Annual Conference in New Orleans, June 23–28, the guide is a one-stop resource to help programming librarians get the most of their conference experience.
Programs for adult, youth, and family audiences build visibility for the library and enhance the library community’s ongoing commitment to lifelong learning and cultural engagement. Programs and events featured in the Programming Librarian’s Guide to the ALA Annual Conference will present new programming models and formats, resources, and inspiration for program development and practical tips for fundraising, promotion, and building community partnerships, all serving the development of the library as a community cultural center.
Angela Thullen is Program Officer/Communications for the ALA Public Programs Office.
