Libraries are connectors. They connect communities to resources, knowledge, technology, and they are constantly creating and innovating new and better ways to serve. The Michigan Library Association is excited to showcase some of the innovative services and programs from libraries throughout Michigan and bring library workers the inspiration and momentum they need to keep pushing forward. 

Let’s celebrate our successes, inspire advancement, showcase our shining stars, dream big, and Connect to the Future this October 13-14, 2021.
