NLA-MPLA 2017 Conference Update

The joint conference of the Nevada Library Association and the Mountain Plains Library Association will be held October 16 through 18 at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Stateline, Nevada at Lake Tahoe.  From the sounds of sensory story time to the whir of a 3D printer, libraries are much more than quiet spaces; they are hubs of experience and knowledge creation that set the stage for vibrant communities.  As librarians it’s time to turn up the volume on innovation as we seek inspiration to deliver new models of information literacy and lifelong education; on engagement with listeners, learners, and makers of all ages and from all backgrounds; on advocacy as we share impactful stories of how libraries empower.

 Call For Proposals is now open at and closes on May 31.  Seeking proposals to support the theme of Turn Up the Volume! in the areas of innovation, advocacy, and engagement.

Room Reservations at a special conference rate may be made at using the group code NLAMPLA17.
