Seguimos Creando Enlaces (We Continue Creating Connections) is a free conference that fosters community connections and cultural diversity in public, academic, and special libraries. This event brings together libraries from the US, Mexico, and across the globe to share best practices and build more inclusive library spaces.

Conference sessions are proudly presented in both English and Spanish and include live translation.

Seguimos Creando Enlaces is supported by California Libraries Learn (CALL), the statewide library staff training project funded under the provisions of the federal Library Services and Technology Act and administered by the California Library Association (CLA). This project provides professional learning opportunities for staff members working in California’s libraries.

All librarians, library staff and library school students are encouraged to attend!
