The official blog of the Maryland Chapter of ACRL
Joint happy hour with MILEX and SLA is tomorrow!
Don’t forget! ARCL MD, the Maryland Information Literacy Exchange and the Maryland Chapter of the Special Libraries Association are co-sponsoring a happy hour tomorrow!
What: So Happy Together: A Librarian-Laden Happy Hour Sponsored by ACRL MD, MILEX and SLA
When: Thursday, April 12 from 6-8pm
Where: Alewife in Baltimore
Cost: Just what you order at the cash bar!
We hope you can join us to meet and mingle with colleagues from around the area, share ideas and make new connections. We’ll provide some hors d’oeuvres and a cash bar will be available.
For those among us who struggle with networking, we’ve planned an activity that we hope will help. You are encouraged to talk to as many attendees as possible about books, with the goal of getting recommendations for new things to read. Each set of three recommendations is good for one entry into a raffle! The recommendations must come from three different people, and must be *new* things to read. The raffle will be pulled at 7:30pm, and you must be present to win. So, start thinking about the books you love and come ready to talk them up!
There is no registration fee, and while we were collecting RSVPs that shouldn’t stop you from coming if you’re just now hearing about this, or if you’ve had a change of plans. Directions to Alewife can be found here. And don’t worry, we’ve made sure to choose a night that the Hippodrome is dark, so there should be plenty of parking!
