About  

The Arizona Library Association and Mountain Plains Library Association invite all library and information professionals to attend the 2014 AzLA/MPLA Annual Conference, to be held at the Radisson Fort McDowell Resort and Conference Center
(soon to be the WeKoPa Resort & Conference Center) in Scottsdale/Fountain Hills, November 12 – 14, 2014.

This year’s joint conference will include attendees from Arizona and from throughout the 12-state Mountain Plains Region. Together, our two associations will highlight the best our libraries have to offer: Creative approaches, new ideas and services, unique collections, and more!

Conference Theme 

"Libraries: The Best of the West!"
Out here on the great frontier, what are your libraries doing not only to stay relevant, but to push the boundaries of library services?  How are your libraries building strong communities?  How do you balance serving your library against connecting with libraries with very different needs and populations?  In the constant duel for limited resources, how do your libraries promote themselves as “the good guys”?  Show off your frontier spirit by sharing the plans and strategies that have made your libraries among “The Best of the West!”

Submission Deadlines:
Preconferences, Programs, and Workshops: Closed
Posters, Roundtables, and Blitz Sessions: Closed
