About the Conference

The MOBIUS Annual Conference is a chance for MOBIUS members to come together once a year and swap ideas, network, and receive training. The conference is free for employees of Missouri libraries and affordable for those coming from outside the state.

The MOBIUS Annual Conference will be held at the Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center, Independence, MO.
The Drury Inn & Suites is our secondary hotel located only 2 miles from the conference hotel! 


The hotel is located off I-70 on Bass Pro Drive in Independence, next to Bass Pro Shop and a short drive to all Kansas City has to offer. But maybe you'd rather have a map?

  • MOBIUS, through a generous grant from the State, can only pay for 1/2 of a hotel room for each guest. This means that if you do not share a room with another attendee, you are responsible for paying the other half which is $52.76  (Total cost for a room is $105.51 including fees and taxes).
  • The meals at the conference will be pretty substantial, but you will most likely want to bring a little extra cash for snacks and other extras. Note from the organizers: Some of us are vegetarians and made sure there will be options, but let us know if you have other dietary concerns.
  • You'll want to have some dough for after-hours things.

Need something official to be reimbursed for your expenses?

The conference rate at the Stoney Creek Hotel is $105.51 per night. The dates for the conference are June 4th, 5th, and 6th.
