Welcome to the NCSLMA 2024 Conference: 

Being a Librarian is a Walk in the Park

Hello, adventurous vendors and sponsors! As we gear up for the NCSLMA 2024 Conference, taking place on October 3rd and 4th at the Koury Convention Center in Greensboro, NC, we are excited to invite you to join us for an exploration into the wild and wonderful world of librarianship.

This year, we're not just stepping into any park—we're taking a Jurassic jaunt into the realm of opportunities and surprises. Located in a uniquely triangular building, our vendor area promises prime visibility, nestled between the main arteries of action: two bustling corridors leading to our session rooms. Whether you're positioned near the roar of the escalator or the chime of the elevator, your presence will be at the heart of the expedition.

Vendor and Sponsor Opportunities:

Embark on a journey with us as sponsors, where you can leave giant footprints as:

  • Session Sponsors: Be the T-Rex of your field and support the sharing of knowledge.

  • Meal Sponsors: Fuel our hungry herd of library professionals with your offerings.

  • NCSLMA-Jama Sponsor: Last year's DJ’d open bar event was a Tyrannosaurus-sized success! This year, we aim to go bigger. Stay tuned for the exact times, likely echoing last year's schedule of 7:30 PM to 10:30 PM.

NCSLMA-Jama:

Prepare for a night of prehistoric fun at our NCSLMA-Jama event. Details will be confirmed soon, but anticipate an evening filled with music, mingling, and maybe even some Mesozoic magic.

Why Join Us?

The Koury Convention Center, with its angular allure, symbolizes the strength and resilience of our school library community. As a vendor or sponsor, you'll not only gain exposure to a dedicated group of library professionals but also experience an event that combines professional development with a touch of prehistoric wonder.

We Can't Wait to See You!

Every year, the NCSLMA conference evolves to include new and exciting elements, and 2024 will be no exception. We look forward to your participation in what promises to be a memorable adventure in the lush landscape of librarianship.
