You are Invited to Attend the Florida Library Association's 2017 Annual Conference "Essential 2 Education."
Florida libraries are not just places to check out books. As budgets for county services continue to decrease libraries have become places of learning, clearinghouses of information, and, in some cases, community centers that provide reliable internet access and other amenities that some citizens cannot afford. Our libraries are not a luxury, but a necessity, essential to ensuring that Floridians have access to resources and to the librarians and paraprofessionals who can help them locate, access, and understand the information they need.
You won't want to miss this great opportunity for networking, collaboration and professional development!
