WAPL 2024 Call for Session Proposals

Tuesday, January 9, 2024

Guest post from the Wisconsin Library Association

Plans are underway for the 2024 WAPL conference, taking place May 1- 3, 2024, at the Holiday Inn Stevens Point Convention Center in Stevens Point, WI. Hosted by the Wisconsin Association of Public Libraries (WAPL), a division of the Wisconsin Library Association, this annual conference brings together the public library community to share big ideas and learn from each other through interactive breakout sessions and special events. Watch the conference webpage for updates!

Submit a Session Proposal! This year's conference theme is "Power to the Public," which means:

  • Empowering library staff through conference sessions that kick-start creativity and fuel innovation.
  • Empowering the public to learn, play, and connect at the library through the spaces, programs, and services we offer.
  • Empowering stakeholders to support and advocate for their local public library.

While this is a very broad theme, proposals are not required to fit within it. We encourage innovative proposals on a wide variety of topics. Learn more.

We want to hear your voice! We welcome proposals from libraries of all sizes and from individuals who work in a variety of roles - from front line staff to technical services to programming and more! We also welcome proposals from vendors, consultants, trustees, friends, and other library partners.

We will accept session proposals until midnight on January 26, 2024.

Please contact the WAPL Programming Committee with questions:
