The 2020 ALA Annual Conference -
On March 24th, the American Library Association made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 ALA Annual Conference. The cancellation of the conference does not affect production of Library Journal magazine, although the magazine will no longer receive bonus distribution at the conference as described below.
In addition to its general circulation, the June 2020 issue of Library Journal magazine receives bonus distribution throughout the 2020 ALA Annual Conference, June 26-30, 2020 in Chicago, IL.
Over 10,000 librarians attend the ALA Annual Conference each year in order to save time and money by reviewing the books and services put on display by the hundreds of onsite vendors. In addition to advertising your book in Library Journal magazine, you might also want to display your book(s) in IBPA's Cooperative Booth* at the 2020 ALA Annual Conference for $185/title.
Since IBPA has been attending the ALA Annual Conference for over 25 years, we have first pick of preferable space on the show floor. If you display with IBPA you won't be stuck in the back corner of the exhibit lot: you'll be up front and center where you belong!

*Due to conference cancellation, IBPA is no longer selling single-title display at the 2020 ALA Annual Conference.
