Libraries promote growth, education, diversity, and community and campus engagement; continuously striving to better their communities and all those they serve. The 2017 WLA conference, Recharge, is an opportunity for us to share our expertise, knowledge and ideas to enrich our libraries, communities and ourselves.

The 2017 WLA Conference Committee invites you to share your experience and creativity with the Wisconsin library community at our annual conference, to be held on October 17 – 20, 2017, at the Kalahari Resort and Convention Center in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin. We are seeking an array of programs that will appeal to a wide library audience.

We already have a great lineup of speakers but we seek your help to provide a relevant, timely and intentional learning experience at this year’s conference. You can help by offering your knowledge and expertise for a conference session.

Consider sessions related to topics such as:

Building Collections
Engaging People
Leadership/Professional Development
Library Issues and Challenges
Student and New Professionals
Support Staff
Technology and Digital Services
Trustee and Friends

Don't let the above topics limit you! Feel free to suggest any program you'd like to present. Submit your proposal here.

Final program submission deadline is April 28, 2017, with preference given to those received by April 14, 2017.

Please feel free to contact us with questions.
