The British Columbia Library Association has graciously extended the membership price to their upcoming conference to all APLA members as well 🙂 Find the information below:

Registration for the 2024 BC Library Conference is now open. You can view the schedule and register now!


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, and a closing keynote experience by the Wild Moccasin Dancers.


Register early to get Early Bird rates: Early Bird Registration is from February 5 - March 6. Full-price registration begins March 7 and conference registration closes April 10.


We look forward to connecting with you at the conference on April 24-25th at the Pinnacle Hotel Harbourfront. Please join us for an incredible line-up of speakers and presenters!
