Spring Forward 2024
Call for Proposals
Calling all libraryland idea growers, gardeners, cultivators, and curators! We know the past few years have been a time of difficult change, but challenging times can lead to reimagined and reinvented library services, partnerships, and spaces.
So we want to know: What’s changed for the better at your library? What new things did you try that took root? What old initiatives needed pruning before they could blossom?
Tell us what you've been doing!
Seed Starters (aka the kind of topics we'd like to see):
August 4 - October 6: Idea Forum Open
Mid-October: Invitations to Round 2 Sent
October-November: Round 2 Peer-Review
Early December: Invitations to Present Sent
January: Registration Opens
March 10 - March 22: Spring Forward Conference!
Content for Spring Forward will be spread over two weeks in March. We know that 8 hours of online meetings is exhausting, and we want participants to be able to breathe between sessions. Plus we know that just because you're conferencing, it doesn't mean your library stops functioning!
