SLA 2017 Project – Books for Kids!

SLA 2017 Project – Books for Kids!

Shared from SLA Connect

Colleagues,   Here is an opportunity to go to a kids bookstore, or I guess any bookstore you can find and pick up a couple or three Children’s Books to bring to SLA 2017 in Phoenix.  Think of it as “reserving space” in your luggage, so you can do some shopping on your trip home!  A kind of exchange system!!  I understand the AZ Chapter would like to have the books in hand by the close of Exhibits on Tuesday, Jun 20th.  Earlier is better.


SLA is proud to be teaming up with Kids Need to Read , an organization based in Mesa, AZ, and will be collecting donated children’s books at the Annual Conference in Phoenix next month. Pack a children’s book with you on your trip to Phoenix, and drop it off in the registration area. Your donation will benefit this organization whose mission is to provide “inspiring books to underfunded schools, libraries, and literacy programs across the United States, especially those serving disadvantaged children.”
Donate one of your favorite children’s books, or get suggestions from the organization’s list of recommended books: 

Please email for details or if you have any questions, and thank you in advance for your generosity!

DMIL FREE Events at SLA 2017

DMIL FREE Events at SLA 2017

Shared from SLA Connect

Colleagues,   This year SLA is asking attendees to sign up for what they call ” Ticketed Events.”   This includes paid as well as FREE events.

DMIL’s FREE Events are listed in the “Ticketed Events” area.   Please check the ones you plan to attend….it’s better in the long run.

However, if you missed the deadline for selecting the DMIL FREE events, stop by anyway, we have planned for additional folks….and there are really no tickets, per se.   DMIL Members get the FREE Baseball Hats with Logo!   And don’t forget to pick up a “Star Fan” at Kiosk #212!

Hint:  Also helpful to sign up for Programs, too.  Overcrowding makes for a less than happy Conference experience.  See DMIL Selection as follows:  (N.B) – DMIL Business Meeting includes Pizza/Salad Lunch!  See you there!!!
