Speaker: AALL Vice President, Diane Rodriguez, will be joining us as the speaker for our May business meeting. Each AALL Chapter has the opportunity for a visit from the President or Vice President every three years and we are delighted to welcome Diane for our chapter visit. She will share news about national initiatives of the association and would like to hear any suggestions or concerns from chapter members. Ms. Rodriguez currently services as Assistant Director of the San Francisco Law Library.
Community Service: This month the Community Service committee would like to encourage donations to Chicago Books to Women in Prison (CBWP). CBWP is an all-volunteer group that distributes paperback books free of charge to incarcerated people nationwide, focusing on all women and trans/non-binary people. They are dedicated to offering the opportunity for self-empowerment, education and entertainment that reading provides. To make a financial donation via PayPal, click here. Alternatively, to purchase a book from their wish list, which will then be picked up and mailed by a CBWP volunteer, click here.
AALL Raffle: As a way to show our appreciation and as a way to support our membership in their professional development during a difficult year, the CALL Grants & Chapter Awards Committee will be raffling off 25 grants to cover registration for the 2021 AALL Annual Conference at our May Business Meeting!
If you do not want to be considered for this raffle, please opt-out on the meeting registration form.
Door Prizes: Two gift cards will be raffled during the meeting courtesy of LexisNexis. Check out their InfoPro for news and tips for librarians.
