Last year, we brought the conference back in person, and it was a glowing success based on the feedback we received. Not only is the conference intimate, but there are many opportunities to build personal networks, expand best practices, solve challenges, and leave with many ideas. While any sized organization can participate, the conference tends to draw from larger library systems, creating numerous opportunities for contact and brand impact.

IPLFC utilizes the Whova app, which connects attendees with important conference information and notifications. The app provides extra visibility for your organization by creating direct interaction opportunities.

We invite you to sponsor this educational event and support the efforts of library fundraisers and stakeholders across North America.

If you can’t attend in person, we would like to make your registration a scholarship so that a colleague could attend in honor of your organization.
