VA Special Libraries Association Family Friendly Networking Event

About this Event : Register at EventBrite.

Join the Virginia & Washington DC Chapter of the Special Libraries Association for a family friendly networking event which will meet at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA). This is an opportunity for parents and grandparents who may not normally make our social networking events to have a chance to meet and network with other librarians in the region. All are welcome to attend.

We want to welcome participants to come wearing the color purple (for SLA) or librarian/information professional themed clothing. We will have name tags as well.

The below schedule is intentionally split to better accommodate folks who may only be able to participate for a couple hours earlier or later in the day if necessary. Whatever works best for you and your family is okay.
