Springy Participation in Upcoming Conferences

We can’t begin to tell you just how much we miss attending traditional conferences like we did in the before times. They’re always this terrific opportunity to be in the same room with our enthusiastic librarians. We love to answer your questions, show you what’s new and exciting, share awesome little tips and tricks, and you just can’t beat the fun of putting a face to an email. We hope that everyone can stay safe and healthy until that day comes again soon when we can trade real high fives for the virtual ones!

Rest assured, we are still in the mix. Check out the details on the conferences we are attending virtually and those we’re supporting. If you’re attending, too, be sure to pop into our virtual booths to chat up a Springy team member. Hope to “see” you there!
