WAPL and Your Great Youth Program Idea

Hey YSS members!

Did you know the Youth Services Section is one of the co-sponsors of the annual spring WI Association of Public Libraries conference? Well, we are!

We hope you are thinking of an exciting teen or children's services program you want to develop with colleagues (or encourage your YSS peers who have the good stuff to share) to submit to the WAPL conference program committee. 

If you do and you want to have YSS actually sponsor your program, please be sure to get in touch with us ASAP (we meet in early January where co-sponsorships will be on the agenda) and pitch your plan so the YSS board can let you know if we can be your sponsor! 

Send an email with your title and description to 2016 YSS chair Leah Langby at

More info on how to prepare your proposal:

The WAPL Conference Planning Committee invites program proposals for the Spring Conference, to be held May 11-13, 2016 at the Best Western Premier Waterfront Hotel & Conference Center in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

Proposals for presentations, panels, workshops and business meetings are welcome.  Sessions will run either 45 or 60 minutes in length.  Every WLA unit has a special perspective to offer and we encourage you to be part of our 2016 WAPL Conference.  If you, as a WLA member, have a great program idea, don’t wait to be asked to present it, submit a proposal yourself!  The more ideas and diversity of topics, the more rewarding this learning opportunity will be for all.

Please use the Program Proposal Form to submit a program.

Deadline for proposals is: February 1, 2016.  You will be notified of the program’s acceptance or rejection no later than March 11, 2016.
