ALA Annual Conference 2023

Get ready to lead with your hands and heart at ALA Annual 2023!

I can hardly believe that the ALA Annual 2023 Conference in Chicago is upon us! As I gather the things I’ll need for a long weekend full of learning, celebrations, and connecting with friends old and new, I’m keeping my energy and enthusiasm up with a particular playlist: the ALSC President’s Program 2023 Playlist!

This playlist includes excellent up-tempo tunes that are ideal for getting packed for conference–and it’s a perfect prelude to what is sure to be a phenomenal President’s Program on Monday afternoon of the conference. The President’s Program panel will feature three amazing leaders within the library and book community. I cannot wait to be in the room for this inspiring conversation about all the ways youth library workers are powerful, no matter their role.
