Libraries around the world share a deep commitment to support the enduring values necessary for the continued progress of humanity including justice, freedom, equality and peace. These values are universal and borderless. Responding to a call by international members of ALA, the IRRT International Connections Committee will invite international library leaders to help us understand the concept of a global community of libraries and why it matters. They will share their vision of a global community of libraries, discuss opportunities and challenges we face and how we can work together to make it happen. This program will bring a wide range of global and strategic perspectives to ALA and will inspire ALA leaders and library leaders in their strategic planning and policy making. It will also help enhance a deeper understanding of this year’s ALA theme “libraries = strong communities”.
