Annual Conference Session
Bring your best sign and loudest voice, as ALA President Loida Garcia-Febo and other library advocates from across the country celebrate the culmination of the Libraries = Strong Communities National Library Tour, a national advocacy effort aimed at highlighting the value of academic, public, and school libraries. During her presidential year Garcia-Febo toured a variety of libraries to ignite public awareness about the value of libraries and library staff and created a groundswell of goodwill at the local, state, national, and global level. This is a can’t miss rally that will honor participating tour sites such as Pikes Peak (Colorado) Public Library District; Cambridge (Massachusetts) Public Library; Seattle Public Library; North Miami Public Library; Los Angeles Public Library; MIT and Harvard Libraries; Cranston High School East Media Center; and several international libraries.
