Seeking Proposals: Northeast Chapter Spring Workshop

February 28, 2017

The Northeast Chapter of the Pennsylvania Library Association is currently seeking proposals for our spring workshop on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at King’s College in Wilkes-Barre, PA. Our theme this year is Libraries in Networks: Creating, Participating, Cooperating and Advocating.

Libraries have a strong tradition of working together to manage and share resources and information. Technological developments have aided in creating opportunities for even greater collaboration but have also prompted libraries to reimagine and reinvent themselves in order to remain relevant. Libraries of all types are engaging in various networks in order to implement new services, participate in larger community endeavors, work with non-profits and government agencies and advocate with more power.

In today’s interconnected world, libraries cannot work in isolation. We are looking for presenters who can share their experiences working within various networks.

Topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Immigrant communities
  • Marketing
  • Social justice
  • Fact checking fake news
  • Community gardens
  • All levels of advocacy

If you are interested in presenting on one of the above topics or another topic related to Library Networks, please consider submitting your proposal by filling out the following form:

Deadline for submission is Monday, April 10, 2017. We are seeking approximately six presenters for 60-minute breakout session presentations and approximately eight presenters for 7-minute Pecha Kucha presentations ( If you wish to be considered for both types of presentations, please indicate that on the form. All proposals received by April 10, 2017 will be reviewed by the Northeast Chapter’s Board. We look forward to receiving your proposal!

Thank you,
