Fall 2008 Events

ALA-SC Fundraiser:

Here is a great opportunity to help support future librarians. As a fund raiser, the ALA Student Chapter is proud to announce that it is selling plastic-lined thermal travel mugs. Some reasons why we are excited about this mug:

Prices are very reasonable: one for $10, two for$18. A sample, along with order forms, ARE ON DISPLAY NOW in Bilger 319. How can you get a hold of these mugs? Contact either Joyce Tokuda ( or Karen Brown ( in person or by email. Alternatively, fill out and mail the attached order form to receive mugs by mail, or drop it in the ALA-SC mailbox in the LIS office. Payment can be made by check (made out to ALA-SC) or cash, and we will have the mugs on campus for easy pick-up. Thank you for your continued support of librarianship, ALA-SC Fund Raising Committee
