Denver Botanic Gardens welcomes The Council on Botanical and Horticultural Libraries to Denver, the Mile-High City!  

Our 2022 meeting's theme, Elevate Change, highlights both Denver Botanic Gardens' location in a high-desert environment at 5,280 feet and the many changes that COVID-19 has brought to our profession of librarianship.

Several special speakers will bring the theme of "Elevate Change" to life.To learn more, go to the Guest Speakers tab.
