Please plan to join us in 2023!

November 1, 2022 Update - Our hope is that as many as possible would attend the in-person conference in Cedarville, OH, which will include all of the traditional elements of our annual conference. We know that not all can come in person with budgets and time constraints, so we will continue to offer a virtual option for 2023, but at a different time than our in-person event.

The Association of Christian Librarians hosts an annual conference in order to inform attendees about contemporary trends in librarianship, stimulate professional development, encourage networking, and provide opportunities for the exchange of ideas. The conference is also one way that ACL can bring our members into community to encourage one another as Christian librarians primarily serving in Christian higher education around the globe. Librarians should attend who are looking to advance in their profession, engage with like-minded professionals, and be encouraged for the upcoming year.
