ALA Midwinter Meeting Includes Engagement Meetup

The American Library Association (ALA) has been focusing increasingly on community engagement and using libraries as spaces for civic dialogue recently. As part of that work, they sent out an invitation to a reception of engagement professionals during their 2015 Midwinter Meeting. We encourage NCDD members to read the invitation below and learn more about ALA at alamw15.ala.org.

An invitation for those of you attending ALA’s 2015 Midwinter Meeting:

Are you an expert in engaging your community? Or do you simply want to be? Join ALA’s Public Programs Office for a Libraries Fostering Community Engagement Reception at the 2015 Midwinter Meeting.

The gathering will be held from 5 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, January 31, at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Hyde Park/CC 11A (on-site at the convention center). Connect with like-minded library professionals at this informal networking reception. Share your ideas, vent your frustrations, and hopefully walk away inspired.

Light refreshment will be served.

Please add the event to your Scheduler at the following link so we can know how many people to expect: http://alamw15.ala.org/node/26873

If you have any questions, please contact Brian Russell at brussell@ala.org. Look forward to seeing you there!

This event is sponsored by the ALA initiative Libraries Transforming Communities (ala.org/LTC).
