Call for Cool Things My Library Does Proposals

Cool Things My Library Does will be held on Thursday, March 22, 2018 from 5:00 - 6:30 p.m.

Submissions welcome through Monday, January 8, 2018

Do you have a great project you’ve implemented at your library, but don’t think the information would fill a whole breakout session time slot? 

Would you like to share your unique programming ideas with your peers? 

Have you or your library done something so great, you have to share it with the world? 

Does your library do something no one else does?

Please consider submitting a proposal for Cool Things My Library Does. This quick engaging presentation session will give you an opportunity to showcase your brilliance in a comfortable group discussion and reception format.  Think of it like a strolling poster session show-and-tell with props. Topic examples might be unique collections, outreach programs, engaging services or distinctive displays.
