Look Back at LibLearnX 2023!

At ALA’s second-annual LibLearnX, presenters shared different approaches and a refreshed outlook for dealing with the swell of book bans and censorship attempts happening across the country. Authors and illustrators took to the stage to offer stories of hope and struggle and showed the power of centering narratives from those who are Black, Indigenous, and people of color. And with the return of the Symposium on the Future of Libraries, futurists and information professionals showcased how libraries are looking ahead to anticipate their patrons’ needs and prepare for their own sustainability.
