  • If you're a first-timer, this is a great spot to start. Get plugged in at this one-stop location to get connected.
  • From conference event sessions to ALA’s four strategic directions (i.e., advocacy; information policy; professional and leadership development; and equity, diversion and inclusion), you’ll be surrounded by information.
  • Avid ribbon collector? Find special ribbons that you can’t get anywhere else!
  • Curious about our public awareness campaign, Libraries Transform? The ALA Lounge is the place to learn about the initiative, and our goals.
  • Learn how membership can help enhance your career and get information to help you improve library services for your community.
  • And, there's always plenty of swag!
