The Assembly will give directors the chance to share and discuss issues and topics important for Florida’s midsized population areas.


We will cover the cost of an additional hotel room on Wednesday, October 24, for Assembly attendees.

Make your reservations for this additional night when you register for the 2018 Public Library Directors Meeting.

We will send you a hotel registration link about two months before the meeting. Use this link to ensure you or your library is not charged for your hotel room.


There is no registration fee for the Assembly.
