This Conference Gives Back To Our Associations!

We're excited to bring a conference to libraries that gives back to our amazing library community.

Check out our first three sessions and presenters!

We're excited to announce our first three sessions and presenters. These three presenters are experts in their fields and will be teaching librarians some of latest tips and tricks for fundraising, message building, and brand strategy from their experiences outside of the library profession. At this one-of-a-kind conference, you won't hear from any of the same speakers that you hear from at other conferences because we're dedicated to bringing in experts from around the world to infuse the library industry with new ideas, concepts, strategies, and tactics to help you build the community support that you need in order to fund your library. Check back often because we'll be continuously releasing new sessions and presenters every few days so check back often!

What Is LAFCON and Why?

The library industry is under threat from a number of major crises simultaneously during these uncertain times, particularly the loss of financial and voter support. The COVID-19 crisis has decimated the fundamental municipal tax base that funds school and public libraries. Even libraries that were doing well before the crisis may be facing new challenges. Without community support, libraries will continue to drastically lose funding in the coming years.
