The Louisiana Library Association’s 2017 Annual Conference will culminate tomorrow with another full day of programs at the Cajundome Convention Center.

The theme this year is Louisiana Libraries: Shaping The Future, and features programs that will help librarians gain more knowledge and skill to use in and out of the library. The conference also give librarians and other library professionals the opportunity to meet-and-greet others in their field, exchange ideas, and make new friends.

Featured speakers include :

  • Greer Macallister: Short Story Writer, Playwright and Novelist of the“The Magician’s Lie” and “Girl in Disguise”
  • Nancy J.Cavanaugh:  Author of “This Journal Belongs to Ratchet,” “Always, Abigail” and “Just Like Me”
  • Miriam Childs:  Director, Law Library of Louisiana
  • M.O. Walsh:  New York Times Best Selling Author of “My Sunshine Away

With programs scheduled from “Red Beans, Rice and Reading: Services to Represent a Local Community” and “Reaching Students In and Out of the Library Digitally” to “Hosting a Cat Lover’s Party”, the wide range of topics will surely appease registered attendees.
