Cheery Friday Greetings,


Well, my youngest daughter is getting married tomorrow, and between all things annual, next week's Academic Libraries 2018 conference here in Ithaca, and the wedding, it is a very hectic time!


Please register for the annual meeting--we are hoping for a sizable number to explore via an Open Space Technology format:


  • How can we achieve greater cohesion and mutual benefit among librarians and library workers in this region?
  • How can we create and support new and stronger collaborations between libraries and other potential partners?
  • How can SCRLC further support us in achieving our hopes and dreams for the future of library services and organizations?


There is also still time to nominate a colleague or project for an annual award! Applications are due October 18!


Yours in partnership,


Mary-Carol Lindbloom

Executive Director
