2022 ULC Annual Forum

Durham-Main

2022 ULC Annual Forum
Creating a Place for Democracy
Washington, D.C. | November 16-18

Public libraries serve as champions for democracy, ensuring core values of free speech and access to information for all. At this critical time in our history, public libraries continue to be on the frontlines of protecting this freedom.

This November 16-18, the 2022 ULC Annual Forum: Creating a Place for Democracy invites executive library leaders to Washington, D.C. to engage in expert-led sessions on preserving democracy and cultivating the future of libraries as a central pillar within our communities. Hosted by the DC Public Library, this important event will bring together leaders from major urban library systems across the U.S. and Canada.

Registration for the 2022 ULC Annual Forum is now open. Stay tuned to ULC's social media (#ULCForum22), website and newsletter for additional details. Please email Colleen Morsli with any inquiries.
