Thank You to everyone who helped make the 2019 KLA Annual Conference a great success!!

October 15-16, 2020
Embassy Suites Coldstream

Lexington, KY

Proposal submissions are now being accepted for the Kentucky Library Association's 2020 Conference, to be held October 15 and 16 at the Embassy Suites in Lexington, Kentucky.  

This year’s theme, Libraries: United We Stand, serves as a reminder that by working together and supporting each other’s efforts, we can forge the libraries, the communities, and the world in which we want to work and live.

As you craft your proposal, consider--

  • how librarians can work collectively to define/redefine, design/redesign, brand/rebrand our services so that they remain true and relevant to our core missions and values
  • that libraries are an integral part of the educational infrastructure
  • that failures are as important as successes and serve as great teaching tools
  • what we as librarians can learn from other disciplines and their practitioners
  • how we as librarians can create places that are safe for the free exchange of ideas and where discourse is polite and informative

The 2020 Conference Planning Committee has been working since last November to put together an exciting, educational, and interactive series of presentations and events geared to remind us all why libraries are great places and librarians are ultra-cool!  Please consider sharing your knowledge and experience at this year’s conference.

The Committee is accepting proposals until May 15th and will notify prospective presenters of acceptance no later than June 15. In accordance with KLA Policy, all accepted presenters must register to attend at least one day of the conference. 

Submit your session proposal(s) online now!
