The Leader of the 2018 LJ Library of the Year. The 2017 LJ Librarian of the Year. Current and past PLA and CLA Presidents. Leading educators/influencers from California’s library schools. Numerous LJ Movers and Shakers. Directors of IMLS National Medal-winning libraries. Member of the California Library Services Board. Emerging young library leaders. Come and hear a diverse group of library leaders talk about their leadership journey. Where they came from and how they got to where they are now. How they define “leadership”. Successes. Failures. What keeps them up at night. How they deal with politics on the job. How they have used mentors. And whatever you might want to ask them. No Power Points, just straight talk from some of the people who influence the California library community.
