Call for Speakers: 2022 Urban Librarians Conference (Online Fri., Sept. 16)–Deadline Tues., May 31

(via Urban Librarians Unite)

Urban Librarians Unite is seeking speakers for its 2022 Urban Librarians Conference. Themed “What’s Your Spark?”, this year’s event will take place virtually on Friday, September 16. See below for more details.

Using the past few years as a lens to focus on what we value the most, let’s talk about how we can prioritize what gives our work meaning and brings out the spark that motivates us. What’s your spark? What drives you in your library work? Is there value or mission in your work that keeps you going? That you could talk about for an hour with no script, just pure drive? Here’s your chance!

We are looking for speakers to talk about that things they’d *always* rather be working on. Is it a program? Worker advocacy? A tech project? You tell us.

The deadline for speaker applications is Tuesday, May 31, at 11:00 PM CDT. To apply, please go here. More details on the 2022 Conference are available here.
