The ILCE-IG is pleased to announce that our proposal for the CAL conference has been selected. “It’s a Small, Small World: Helping Libraries around the World” is slated for Friday, October 17, 3:00-4:15 p.m. (subject to change).
Members of the CAL International Library Cultural Exchange-Interest Group are active around the world helping libraries. Come and hear stories of our work. Kathy Plath works with libraries and schools in Lesotho bringing inexpensive durable computers to students and teachers with the One Laptop per Child Project. Jane Mirandette and architect Justin Martinez collaborated to design and build the new San Juan del Sur Biblioteca using crowd source fundraising. Nancy Bolt delivered a check from ALA to aid earthquake destroyed libraries in the Philippines and will describe the damage, the efforts to recover, and overall library service. Janet Lee, Chair of ILCE-IG, will moderate.
Last year our International reception was quite a success. Watch for announcements of a time and place for this very fun event.
