    Richland Library

    May 2-4, 2018

    More than 40 ULC member library leaders convened for our first-ever Lessons from the Field event on May 2-4, 2018, hosted by Richland Library. Attendees toured Richland Library branches, learned about human-centered design ideas, engaged in discussions about the library's role in addressing community challenges and created plans for how they could apply the lessons they learned back home.

"This was the best ULC event I've ever attended. I LOVED IT!!!"

"It's so important to be with other library leaders in order to keep my head up/set my vision/remain optimistic. Such high level thinking and interaction."
