Learn Local!

Learn Local! Is a new approach to conferences that WLA is offering in the form of three separate, one-day events in April 2017, and we are excited to offer more local, affordable options for continuing education for our members and the WA library community at large. We are especially grateful to our three site sponsors, The Seattle Public Library, Yakima Valley College, and the Spokane Public Library for serving as the location hosts. 

Each Learn Local! will have enough variation that you can attend one or all. We look forward to Learning Local with YOU!
