2016 Illinois Youth Services Institute: Submit a Program Proposal

August 12, 2015
The 2016 Illinois Youth Services Institute Be Bold! Experiment brings together Youth Services library staff from across the state, giving them an opportunity to grow, network, and be inspired.
This inaugural institute will be held at the Marriott Hotel and Conference Center in downtown Normal, IL, on April 1-2, 2016.  Youth Services is undergoing a profound transformation, as libraries continue to evolve and redefine their role in the community.  This two-day conference will bring together children and teen services staff to share and experience best practices during these times of change. 
The Institute Planning Committee is accepting program proposals for the April 2016 event.  Please consider sharing best practices that you have developed for your awesome programs, collaborations, and library services for youth.
Deadline for submissions is October 31, 2015.  Submit your proposal today!
