What could be better?

ALA conference goers, we hope you will join the LeRoy C. Merritt Humanitarian Fund at its annual “Reception for a Cause” on Sunday, June 26. This year we’re doing it a bit differently.  We’re joining with the New Members Round Table, who will be presenting their annual Shirley Olofson Memorial Award and 3M/NMRT Professional Development grants.

The event will be:

Complimentary hors d’oeuvres provided. No charge for admission – and for only $10 you’ll get a wristband giving you access to the open beer/wine bar! Live music by the Bryce Eastwood Quartet.

You can RSVP on Facebook at!/event.php?eid=184349558275994 or just show up.

Many thanks to the Intellectual Freedom Round Table and ALA President Elect Molly Raphael for their generous support of this event!
