Meeting of the Programming Librarian Interest Group (PLIG). Group charge: To bring together all types of librarians interested in public programming for their patrons.
Programming is an intrinsically essential library service. The Programming Librarian Interest Group will help librarians advocate for programming at their own institutions, share program ideas and successful strategies, and provide a space for professional development by librarians who do programming officially and unofficially as part of their job duties. The group will also be a vehicle for ALA members to connect more dynamically with ALA’s Public Programs Office.
