  • This event has passed.

All RAILS members are invited to attend a networking event at the Vernon Area Public Library District on Wednesday, December 18, from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. The library is located at 300 Olde Half Day Road, in Lincolnshire.

RAILS Executive Director Dee Brennan will be at the event to talk with members about issues that are important to them and how RAILS might be able to help with these issues. This will also be a perfect opportunity for members in the area to network and get to know each other better. Staff from all types of libraries (academic, public, school, and special) are welcome to attend.

Since this event is so close to the holidays, the hosting library and library director Cindy Fuerst would like your help to help make this a festive meeting. There will be an abundance of desserts and refreshments. Your library is welcome submit photos for the PowerPoint presentation that is being compiled.

A note from Vernon Area Public Library Director Cindy Fuerst:

"Can you help me with the entertainment? We are going to put together a PowerPoint show that will run in the background as a conversation starter. Hey, the holidays are not complete without some family photos...but in this case library photos. Could you send me two or three photos of your library? and maybe a fun and/or interesting fact about your library, staff, or community? For example VAPLD is the proud owner of the "World's Largest Underpants" signed by Captain Underpants himself - author Dave Pilkey. There are other things we are proud of too, but that was the first thing that came to mind. If the goal is to get to know each other, a couple of photos, and a interesting tidbit will help get the ball rolling. Even if you aren't able to make the meeting, send your library's photos for the slideshow. If you could get this information to me by December 6th that will give our staff plenty of time to pull a PowerPoint together."
