Welcome to the 2017 MLA Annual Conference! This year’s theme is Radical Librarianship - the power of libraries to provide access to the truth, strengthen our community voices, create opportunity for exploration and innovation, and assist our patrons to build a better future. Libraries have always been radical, but what does Radical Librarianship mean for us today? Join us at the 2017 MLA Annual Conference to help shape that conversation!

Zines (independently created, self-published magazines) are more important than ever! Rochester Public Library's collaborative teen zine, Zine*o*Cide, covers a wide variety of topics (Pride, remembering a classmate who was killed, and responding to the 2016 election) and has raised awareness of important issues, locally and beyond. This workshop, led by Zine*o*Cide's facilitator and our teen editor, will take you through our experience of zine creation and give you lots of ideas for using zines in your programs to empower youth and amplify the voices of marginalized communities. Our workshop is hands-on, so as you're learning everything you need to make your own successful zine program, (including supplies you'll need, ideas for creating content, and motivating those who don't know what to do!) you'll be creating your own zine to trade with a friend or as a sample for your future zine workshop!
