Our theme is *Commitment – Courage – Community*. Our work and the context
we work in is complex, difficult, and at times overwhelming. However, those
same challenges make our work essential. Our theme is a reminder, a call to
action, and a promise:

*Commitment* to each other, to our patrons, and to our shared values.

*Courage* to stand up for what is right, admit when we are wrong, take
risks, and pursue innovation.

*Community* will always be the answer – an inclusive, accountable community
provides us with the support and strength we need to do our work, even when
the work is hard or we are faced with adversity.



Our program is filled with sessions representing the varied and thoughtful
work being done in libraries, addressing current challenges and trends and
looking to the future. We’re also delighted to feature an opening day
keynote by Emily Drabinski
<https://pheedloop.com/bcla2024/site/speakers/?event=bcla2024&section=224211&id=SPEDXNLBRTC>,
