2018 Conference "Refresh & Refocus"

“It was the best NHLTA conference I've attended in seven years. All of my board came away inspired and feeling they had acquired some new perspectives. The presenters were very well prepared and professional. Just keep up the good work of this conference, and you'll be fine.”

“... these conferences provide a lot of food for thought and action.”
“This [workshop—I Didn’t Know Libraries Did THAT!] was a good way to end the day with sharing of ideas about all the ways library serve their communities outside our traditional role!”
“There were some great ideas in this workshop [Small Libraries Create Smart Spaces] and a few of them might even work for our small library.”
