The conference will feature programs and experiences intended to improve Ohio’s library workforce, facilitate partnerships, and support initiatives that improve the capacity of librarians and library staff to improve their knowledge and skills. Conference participants will have opportunities to network with other library staffs outside of their usual networks, learn what other types of libraries are doing, and explore mutual benefits across different types of libraries. They will discover what other types of libraries can do for and with them, learn to be thoughtful of other library types in developing new ideas, and find inspiration for new and innovative ways to support fellow library staff around the state.
