PLA has provided over 100 hours of on-demand e-learning at low or no cost to PLA members and others working in public libraries. Topics include COVID-19 responses, innovative programming, digital literacy and data measurement tools, equity, diversity, inclusion, and social justice, and more.

The latest free webinars available on demand include:

We are pleased to offer the recordings from our Virtual Conference author speakers at no cost. Listen now to hear from award-winning authors Kevin Wilson, Ann Patchett, and Alice Randall!

PLA’s Web Content Working Group has also assembled an excellent collection of Professional Tools and Resources on the PLA website.
