Northern California APALA Social Announcement

The ALA Annual Conference is over, but still want to see and enjoy company of your fellow APALA members who are in Northern California?

Then join our APALA Northern California Summer Social on Friday, June 29, 2012, at 7pm at the newly-opened, third branch of Enjoy Vegetarian Restaurant. We’ve dined before at the Chinatown location and the food is delicious, reasonably-priced and the company of APALA members.

We’ll order off the menu <>.

Each year, the ALA Office for Literacy and Outreach Services (OLOS) invites library professionals from all kinds of institutions to submit proposals to participate in the ALA Diversity and Outreach Fair, which is held during ALA’s Annual Conferences.

Generously sponsored by DEMCO, the ALA Diversity and Outreach Fair is an opportunity for libraries and member groups to share their successful diversity and outreach initiatives with ALA Annual Conference attendees, celebrate diversity in America’s libraries and exhibit “diversity in action” ideas.

The Fair highlights library services to underserved or underrepresented communities, including people with disabilities; poor and homeless populations; people of color; English-language learners; gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people; new Americans, new and non-readers; older adults; people living in rural areas; incarcerated people and ex-offenders; and mobile library services and bookmobiles.

Each year’s fair focuses on a special theme based on service to one of these communities. The theme of the 2012 Diversity and Outreach Fair is Building Community Connections. 

Selected presenters will develop and facilitate a poster session to be held during the ALA Annual Conference in the exhibits hall.  In addition, the participants are encouraged to submit, in digital format, information and resources from their program.
