Urban Librarians Conference:
Getting our Hands Dirty
Friday, September 27th, 2024
9:30am – 4:30pm
Newark Public Library – Newark, NJ!!

Join us for the thirteenth Urban Librarians Conference on September 27th, 2024, at the Newark Public Library in New Jersey! This year’s theme, “Getting Our Hands Dirty,” focuses on the innovative and practical solutions urban library workers use to tackle budget constraints, limited resources, and diverse community needs. Whether you’re implementing cost-effective garden projects, running advocacy campaigns, creating support networks, or launching community engagement initiatives, we want to hear your success stories. Come share your strategies, connect with fellow professionals, and be part of a community dedicated to making a difference. This will be our first in-person conference since COVID, and we’re thrilled to gather in an exciting new venue, easily accessible by air or rail from the Northeast. Bring your library toolbox and your hi-vis cardigan, and join us in celebrating the hard work and creativity that sustain our urban libraries.
