Call for Spark Talks

It is time to SPARK the minds of other children and teen library staff! If you have an innovative program, service, or even a concept in the children or teen arena, the Child and Youth Expo wants you to be the spark of inspiration in others – especially about the things you didn't know youth library staff needed to know! Proposals are due by September 10.

Do you have an innovative program or service for children or teens to share with your colleagues and peers?  We want to hear about it! Poster Session proposals are due by September 10.
