The annual National Forum brings together public library professionals and suppliers from all aspects of library management. The two-day programme offers peer-to-peer sessions, forward-looking insights and networking.

In this highly interactive environment, delegates are exposed to varying perspectives on tough issues and identify strategies to ensure they remain players in the years ahead.

A new format enables delegates and Forum partners to attend every session. Our line-up of speakers are key decision-makers and innovators from the library sector. 

In person registration is now closed
