2019 Conference

The Pennsylvania Library Association 2019 Conference will take place October 13 - 16, 2019 at the Bayfront Convention Center located on Lake Erie's beautiful Presque Isle Bay. 

The PaLA Board recently approved "Shine On!" as the theme for the event, which gives a nod to Erie's three light houses that have provided navigational assistance for the many ships traveling the waters of Lake Erie since the early 1800’s.  The conference committee recommended the theme for two reasons.  One, libraries “shine a light” for patrons to navigate the vast and increasingly complex world of information. Two, librarians themselves should “Shine On!” with the outstanding work and service they provide to light their local and professional communities. We hope you will join us in the celebration!
