Discussion Pennsylvania Library Association (and partners) literacy initiative

by Julianna Kloeppel (staff) on Wed, Aug 8, 2012 at 02:08 pm

http://www.paforward.org/

"What is PA Forward?

The Pennsylvania Library Association’s 21st Century Literacies Initiative, PA Forward, was conceived to give voice to what the library community already knows, and what other states throughout the nation are also recognizing:

With the right support, libraries are ideally positioned to become the community centers of information, technology, and learning that will fuel educational and economic opportunity for all of our citizens.

Libraries have moved far beyond just being book repositories. They’re agile institutions serving real-life needs. Libraries can be key to powering progress and elevating the quality of life in PA by fueling the types of knowledge essential to success: Basic Literacy, Information Literacy, Civic and Social Literacy, Health Literacy, and Financial Literacy." http://www.paforward.org/Home/PoweringProgress/WhatisPAForward.aspx

I finally have some time to look through this site tonight.

Discussion Booths at PLA 2012 question

by Julianna Kloeppel (staff) on Wed, Aug 8, 2012 at 02:08 pm

I just had a phone call from a company asking me where to find information about booths at PLA2012 conference. Fortunately, that information is immediately available at this part of the PLA2012 website: http://placonference.org/forexhibitors. They should probably then take a look at Booth Reservation in the left navigation.
