For the last several weeks, the Nassau and Suffolk County Library Associations and the Long Island Library Conference Committee have been monitoring the coronavirus outbreak, hoping it would be possible to hold the Long Island Library Conference on schedule and safely.
Unfortunately, we have had to cancel this year’s conference in order to ensure the health and safety of our community of attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and supporters. We hope that all program speakers, vendors, and registrants will adjust their schedules and be with us on Thursday, May 13th 2021 at the Melville Marriott. Should the new date not permit your participation, please contact the committee.
We thank you for your patience during these challenging times and appreciate your cooperation. The Committee looks forward to seeing you next year and is putting renewed energy into planning a great conference.
