Need Volunteers for the ALA Booth at C2E2!
Planning on being on the scene at C2E2? Will you be wearing your “librarian-hat?” Are you willing to lend a hand ?
Great news! We have ideas taking shape for a re-imagining of the ALA Booth on the show floor!
We would really like to make the ALA booth more representative of what Libraries (and librarians) are all about! Taking the modern library as a design starting point we’re hoping to incorporate things like a reference desk, readers advisory service, craft “programs” and even a storytime. What we are looking for are ideas and volunteers who are willing to act on those ideas! Here are some thoughts we have come up for the booth. (FYI – we will NOT have power in the booth! )
Opportunity to sign the “Declaration for the Right to Libraries,”
For more information regarding the “Declaration for the Right to Libraries,” or for information on how to participate, please visit http://tinyurl.com/alalibrarydeclaration.
Story times (in the lobby or foodcourt?)
Make magazine stuff
LED, batteries, conductive thread,
Anyone have stuff/time/ideas to contribute to this?
Free books to give away (contests?)
Readers’ Advisory / Reference
Hot spot “staff” to be able to access internet. (need to test to make sure this will work on the floor)
Library box (with a sign)
People signed up to actually provide the service?
Some simple handout with room for us to write RA suggestions that also promotes libraries?
Sign on a stick
Cocktail table to run “events”
Arm bands – price on armbands? How to identify Librarians?
Your friendly neighborhood Staff Liaison!
