We look forward to seeing everyone at the 2019 BCLA Conference May 8-10, 2019 at the Sheraton Vancouver Guildford Hotel in Surrey, BC. The 2019 BC Library Conference theme “The Future by Design” invites 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.
