National Library Week is here and we are so excited to announce Librarian of Congress Dr. Carla Hayden as our keynote speaker for Day 1 of Digipalooza ‘21! Hayden, the first woman and the first African American to lead the national library, was nominated to the position by President Barack Obama on February 24, 2016, and her nomination was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on July 13, 2016.

Digipalooza is our opportunity to bring together our partners for a unique blend of education, networking, and fun. This year’s theme is Advancing the Science: How Libraries & Schools Best Serve Digital Media and we are so excited to have Dr. Carla Hayden join us for our three half-day virtual conference.
