Learning and Leading Together 


Library Journal and School Library Journal are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting our annual Public Library Youth Services Leadership Summit in person on Sept. 19 (full-day) and 20 (half-day) at Nashville Public Library, in Nashville, TN! 


We invite you to join current and aspiring youth services leaders from across the country to learn about innovative, effective, and actionable best practices from the library leaders who are implementing them. 


Leadership is a mindset and generative practice, available to every library professional. Whatever your role in the library may be today, the opportunity exists for you to apply and develop your skills in ways that expand your career and your impact on colleagues and the people you serve. The Summit is designed to help you take your career, programs, and leadership to the next level.

  • Community Partnerships 

  • Practical Support for Censorship 

  • School\Public Library Partnerships
