EveryLibrary at Midwinter 2015

Buttons and Ribbons

EveryLibrary SWAG for You

Our board members will be out and about the entire conference.  We want to share about our work in 2014 helping libraries win funding.  We need to share about our plans for 2015 and the impact we hope to have.  Please feel free to introduce us to people you think we should meet.  Also, stop us in the halls or in the exhibits for your ELPAC SAWG.

If you or a colleagues are thinking about a ballot measure in the next few years, come by our drop-in time at the UnCommons to learn more. Real casual.

10p
After Hours Party
Moe’s Cantina River North, 155 West Kinzie

EveryLibrary decided to not host a party at Midwinter 2015.  There are a lot of groups who have Saturday night events that we haven’t been able to visit with in a few years.  So we’re focused of getting out and meeting new people.  This after-hours is back to the way it used to go….
Saturday “not us” plug:  You should go to the FTRF 45th anniversary fundraiser event from 7-9p.  They do amazing work defending the First Amendment in Libraries.

 

Sunday, February 1st

12n – 12:30p

It’s not a repeat from Saturday. Fresh talks on the cutting edge of library services, hosted by PC Sweeney and JP Porcaro.
