Spring Institute: People First

Join us March 19-20, 2020 in Ann Arbor for Spring Institute 2020, Michigan’s premier annual education event for youth library professionals. This two-day conference brings together more than 200 children and teen services librarians to share, discover and experience best practices. Formal sessions and vendor exhibits combine with networking and social activities in a fun and collaborative learning environment.

The MLA Spring Institute 2020 theme is People First. By focusing on the needs of our patrons and staff as a top priority and placing a high value on respect we can empower growth within our own communities regardless of our role within the library. Spring Institute 2020 will aim to educate and honor library staff and patrons through people-first practices in hiring, advocacy, displays, programs and collections.

Conference registration will open in January 2020.
