Join us at Tech Days as a presenter!

Do you have a tech tool that makes library work easier, a technology program or service that draws adults, teens or children into your doors, or apps you’ve found or created for library use? Please fill out this form to let us know what you’d like to share and show at a Tech Days East workshop this September! All topics at the intersection of technology and libraries are welcome.
• Possibilities include, but are not limited to, gadgets, coding, apps, digitization, VR / AR, innovative tools, social media, privacy, makerspaces, Google services, STEM / STEAM, data visualization, e-resources, and teaching tech to patrons. 
• Presentations might also focus on serving specific audiences such as preschoolers, tweens, teens, older adults, and people with varied abilities.

Each breakout session at Tech Days East is one hour, which you can fill with 45-60 minutes of content, or your presentation can be 15 or 30 minutes in length and we’ll group it with other topics.  You may do a presentation by yourself or with a team.  All presenters will receive a complimentary lunch and mileage reimbursement.

Pick 1, 2, or all 3 dates and locations for your presentation:

  • Tuesday, September 10 at Franklin Public Library (Milwaukee County)
  • Wednesday, September 11 at Gordon Bubolz Nature Preserve in Appleton (Outagamie County)
  • Thursday, September 12 at Monona Public Library (Dane County)

Deadline for sending us your proposals: Friday, May 31, 2019.
