The Wyoming Library Association resumes its annual conference in-person on September 28-30, 2022 at the Best Western at Platte River in Casper (formerly the Clarion Inn). After two years of meeting virtually for the annual conference, we are looking forward to learning and growing face-to-face. Wyoming libraries have dealt with unique circumstances recently, from pandemic response to the fight for intellectual freedom. This conference will focus on encouraging attendees in the important work done by libraries and librarians in trying times and to provide tools and resources to equip staff to represent the needs of their entire communities – reminding us that we are truly Stronger Together.
Topics might include dealing with post-pandemic budgets, technology changes, burnout, hybrid or innovative programming, and other challenges and opportunities. Other pertinent topics might be Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, and Social Justice and those related to Intellectual Freedom. Can you share your knowledge with your colleagues, host an interactive workshop, or lead a discussion about best practices?
Program proposals will be accepted through May 27. Consider how best to deliver your information, and begin crafting your proposal. View this form to submit your proposal. We will be in touch regarding the outcome of your proposal(s) by July 15th. If you have any questions, please contact Conrrado Saldivar at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your idea for a program could be one to help make this year’s conference great!
