OLC ANNUAL

September 25-27 2019

Cincinnati, Ohio
In this era when some people feel libraries can be replaced by the internet or believe that ‘no one reads anymore anyway,’ the myriad of things we do and how we impact lives matters more than ever before. And showing what libraries do is often best accomplished not by numbers, but by stories that our citizens, community leaders, and boards can relate to. There is nothing else as impactful and nothing else makes a difference in people’s lives as much as good, caring service. It is at the core of every collection, program, activity, partnership, and relationship we undertake. And it is essential in every library employee. The 2019 Convention and Expo is an opportunity to refresh your skills, build your knowledge, and reconnect to what brought you to libraries.

Bath County, VA
Attending VACo’s Annual Conference is a great way to gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing localities. Counties across Virginia often face similar concerns, yet community leaders don’t always take advantage of an invaluable resource: their neighbor in the next county over. With roughly 1000 local government officials, state representatives, speakers, and exhibitors in attendance, the Annual Conference is the perfect place to learn from and join forces with your peers from across the Commonwealth. Don’t miss this chance to visit with state legislators, learn from the experts, and experience the benefits of collaboration and innovation with your fellow local leaders.
