Urban Librarians Conference 2021

May 7, 2021
9:30am – 4:30pm
Virtual Conference on Hey Summit

Call for Proposals is open until January 15th 2021, midnight EST.

Liberation and Joy

Libraries are often thought of as places first, whether as book repositories as community spaces, or even as ad hoc social service offices. What if we began to see  them as spaces for community liberation instead? What if we saw libraries  as a vehicle for creating joy? 

What would that look like, and how would that change our libraries and ourselves?

The 2021 Urban Librarians Conference will focus on librarians and library staff creating spaces and dreaming up services that help our communities pull together even when things are terrible. What parts of your work do you feel liberate yourself or others? What aspects of your work create joy for you and those in your community?  Join ULU and a few hundred of your closest library friends and share what fuels your library.
