Join Us in Nashville

The Public Library Association is heading to Nashville for the PLA Conference, February 25–29, 2020, and we want you to join! With a record-breaking number of program submissions, the PLA 2020 Conference is sure to leave you with the knowledge, confidence, resources, support, and inspiration to bring change back to your library. That’s in addition to the new people you’ll meet and variety of entertainment you’ll enjoy—it’s in Music City after all! Most conference events will take place in the heart of downtown, just steps from famous honky-tonks, award-winning music venues, museums, and Nashville’s much-lauded culinary scene. Join us in Nashville to do more than develop new skills and talk about how far our libraries have come—be a part of inventing what comes next.


Registration opens September 18!
