The New Mexico Library Association is delighted to announce its 2022 in-person annual summit, librarySTRONG. In 2019, the American Library Association identified sustainability as a core value of librarianship and although it's always been a key component of libraries, librarians have not always seen their work as meeting those challenges. Sustainability, however, is much more than just a commitment to improving and maintaining our environments. It can be found in library budgets, workflows, planning, pedagogy, community engagement, and equity initiatives, among many other things. In a world that is living with a pandemic, threats of climate change, political unrest, and other factors that affect our lives and planet, the resilience of libraries is increasingly important for our communities. Join us as we explore the diverse ways New Mexico libraries are engaging issues of sustainability.
