Minitex is pleased to announce that Minneapolis-based poet and educator Kyle Tran Myhre will provide the opening keynote for day one, and Felton Thomas, Jr., Executive Director of the Cleveland Public Library, will provide the keynote address for day two of the new Minitex Connect conference. The inaugural edition of Minitex Connect will take place May 3-4, 2022. The fully online conference will consist of two half days, with each half-day beginning at 8:30 a.m. The conference will have four tracks: Expanding Access; Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion; Resource Sharing; and Digital Librarianship. Attendees will be free to focus on any given track, or to bounce from one to the other as they so choose. 

No matter where you are, or who you are, libraries are there for you. That spirit has never been more important than it is today. That's why the inaugural edition of the Minitex Connect conference will focus on digital inclusion and equity of access to library services. Together, we'll learn about the innovative ways Minitex and libraries across Minnesota and the region are improving their services to offer them to anybody, anywhere.
