Annual Conference

2023’s conference is on Tuesday, June 6, 2023, at Mercer County Community College, (1200 Old Trenton RD, Princeton Junction, NJ 08550).

The theme is “Be the Change,” and focuses on how integral library paraprofessional staff is to the everyday functioning of libraries of all types, particularly those on the proverbial “front lines” of library work—Library Assistants, Circulation staff, Pages, and Welcome desk staff.
