Event: MLIS End-of-Year Banquet
June 6, 2019
Washington Park Arboretum, Wisteria Hall
7 to 9:30 PM
Current MLIS students are invited to the MLIS End-of-Year Banquet from 7 to 9:30 p.m. Thursday, June 6, at the Washington Park Arboretum’s Wisteria Hall, to celebrate our accomplishments and toast the graduating cohort. Hosted by ALISS, iYouth, SAA, and sALA, the event will feature hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and music. iYouth will announce its Summer Reading Challenge, and attendees can learn about MLIS events planned for the summer. As this is not a sit-down banquet, the tone of the evening will be casual yet refined. Attendees are encouraged to dress however they feel most comfortable.
Interested in youth services? Come on out to the 2019 iYouth Conference: Departures & Disruptions!
This year, the iYouth Conference will highlight the incredible work of local librarians and LIS students who are making meaningful change in their communities. Whether by departing from traditional methods/ideas of librarianship or disrupting current systems that aren’t working for the communities they serve, there are incredible change-makers in our libraries working to make them better for children, youth, and teens.
Hear from local public librarians, school librarians, students, and a local author! Enjoy free food at an afternoon reception and take home advance reading copies of upcoming titles!
