The 2019 BC Library Conference

The 2019 BC Library Conference theme is “The Future by Design”. The libraries and services we design help shape the future of our communities and our society. We invite the library community to explore the intentionality of our work and apply the tools of design thinking to our practice. “The Future by Design” imagines where our libraries might be headed and the paths we might take to get there. It encourages creative new ideas, prototyping, experimentation and testing. Help us examine forward-thinking ways to evolve our libraries as we continue to serve our communities and design our future.

We are privileged to hold the 2019 BC Library Conference in the City of Surrey which is located on the Traditional Territories of the Semiahmoo, Katzie, Kwikwetlem, Kwantlen, Qayqayt and Tsawwassen First Nations.

We look forward to seeing everyone May 8–10, 2019 at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel in Surrey, BC!
