We are excited and honored to host the 2017 conference with the Southeastern Library Association (SELA) which will connect librarians from 12 states.

We invite you to submit proposals for panels, performances, workshops, or sessions that highlight every aspect of libraries, librarianship, scholarship and/or education—all of which are integral components to the mission of the West Virginia Library Association.
