LSTA Grants for Public Libraries: Available Conferences

Information about the LSTA program, instructions and forms for public libraries seeking sub-grants, and tips for evaluation of grant-funded services

What Conferences Are Available For Library Staff?

There are conferences designed for just about every kind of library worker. For public library staff, the biggies on the national scene are “ALA” and “PLA” – that is, the American Library Association Conference, held annually, and the Public Library Association Conference which occurs every other year. PLA tends to be smaller and more focused on issues that interest public library workers. ALA has something for every kind of librarian!

Conferences are held for special library workers, for academic librarians, and for school library media personnel. If you work in any of these fields, there are conferences designed especially for you.
