What a great semester for UB-ALA! First of all, t-shirt sales have been brisk and over half of them are already sold. If you want a t-shirt, please be sure to let us know ASAP. Second, if you missed our wine and cheese soiree, it was a really great time for everyone, with interesting discussion and debate. Many thanks to everyone for bringing something to share. We hope that you can make it to the next one.
The Books Behind Bars book-raiser was a total success. We collected almost 200 books for the Chautauqua County Jail. It was 82 degrees that day and sunny, so Cozumel was filled beyond capacity. Our handmade smiley bookmarks were surprisingly popular.
Other accomplishments include ratification of our new constitution, great workshops, and a successful bake sale. We look forward to working with new officers Blodine Francois (Vice President) & Sarah Kelly (Secretary).
This June, our Student-to-Staff representative at the ALA Conference in Anaheim, CA will be working for the Governance Office.
Next semester we plan on getting the Give-a-Book, Take-a-Book Shelf put up and stocked somewhere on this campus. We also want to re-work the website, get creative with our workshops, and more.
Everyone, enjoy your summer! Watch for notices about euchre tourneys, pool parties, and who knows what else. To those of you moving on to greener pastures, be sure to keep them well-watered or else they will turn brown…
