What Will We Keep: Creating the Next Remix of Library Services
In 2020 we saw libraries close, partially reopen, fully reopen, and some we watched go through the cycle multiple times. Through it all, libraries adapted to the new operational and service landscape in unique and unprecedented ways. Which services will be part of the new mix? Which new service delivery methods, unique programs, and systems will continue into the future? 

Join us May 12 for the Amigos 2021 Annual Member Conference “What Will We Keep: Creating the Next Remix of Library Services” as we discuss libraries’ new directions, services, and opportunities and what libraries expect to keep as our changed landscape continues to develop. Register by April 23 to reserve your free conference gift! As always, attendance is free for those working in Amigos member libraries!
Save the Date: August 11, 2021 for the next topical Amigos conference, "Where Are We Going and Where Have We Been: Adventures in Archives, Preservation, Digitization and Local History." Keep an eye out for CFP and session announcements on Twitter.
