The Alberta library community plays a critical role in supporting innovation, learning, creativity and creation of knowledge. Libraries and Library Boards are excited about the great success of Alberta libraries! ALC is a time to celebrate our successes and generate excitement and vision for the future.
The Alberta Library Conference is held annually in late April/early May at Jasper Park Lodge. Over 800 delegates, vendors, speakers and guests attend from a variety of library types. Delegates include library staff (60%) and public library trustees (40%). It is considered one of the most successful library conferences in Canada, bringing together public library staff and trustees with academic, government and special library staff.
