23rd Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future: Think Outside the Bricks: Embed, Engage, Expand

This year marks the 23rd year of the LILRC Annual Conference on Libraries and the Future, which will take place on October 23rd and 24th, 2014 at a new location: Carlyle on the Green at Bethpage State Park.  This year’s speakers will take us outside the walls of the library as we explore the theme, Think Outside the Bricks: Embed, Engage, Expand.

The conference will kick-off on Thursday night with dinner and our guest speaker, New York State Assemblywoman Michaelle Solages, Assembly District 22, and Member, NYS Assembly Committee on Libraries and Education Technology.  Michaelle is no stranger to libraries and after graduating from Hofstra, she worked as a supervisor of access services at the University’s Axinn Library.
