Our theme is “Library Magic: Working Smarter, Not Harder”. We are seeking proposals for sessions that showcase how libraries and library staff make library magic happen. Examples are: unique partnerships and outside the box thinking, ways you and your staff have found to work smarter, not harder. If you have any suggestions for groups, organizations, or performers you would like to see at Spring Fling please email Beth Anderson at As always Thursday will be focused on the library as a whole, while Friday will focus on hands-on children’s, early literacy and young adult activities, programs and ideas.

Presenters will be notified in late January regarding the status of their submissions.

*You will be able to have access and revise your proposal after it is submitted.

Presenters should be available for scheduling at any time during Spring Fling. It is not possible to guarantee any session or participant a particular day or time on the program.
