Since 1954, LACONI (Library Administrators Conference of Northern Illinois) has been introducing library staff to new technologies and ideas, best practices, and popular programs for children and adults. LACONI is comprised of eight different sections which offer programs designed to enhance skills and knowledge of library staff in their area of expertise.

    Join LACONI


    LACONI membership is open to all libraries.  Membership dues are used to pay for informative programs that each section produces.  Any member library is welcome to attend the programs, sending as many staff and board members as they wish.  There is often a lunch following any section program which allows for the opportunity to meet and network with other librarians from other library systems.

    Membership dues are $100 and cover the entire staff of a library.  The dues are paid by the library each November and are good January - December of the following year.  Please send in the MEMBERSHIP FORM with your payment to sign up.

    If you have any questions regarding membership contact Kevin Medows at
