Going to San Francisco?

San Francisco is one of the most dynamic, interesting, and culturally-diverse cities in the world. How many more reasons do you need to plan a visit here? Here’s another good one: the NCNMLG/MLGSCA Joint Meeting February 23-26th at the Parc 55 Hotel in San Francisco’s Union Square area. The Joint Meeting Committee has arranged a full schedule of enriching educational opportunities, engaging speakers, enlightening papers and posters, and an abundance of networking opportunities. Not to mention the fabulous shopping, great restaurants, and exciting musical and theatrical venues close by the conference hotel. The theme of the conference is “sustainability” and will focus on how we can sustain our personal and professional lives in healthy ways, not just to survive, but to thrive. In an effort to help sustain the planet, we are working with the hotel to hold as green a meeting as possible. Stay tuned for details on the “How Green is Your Library?” contest.
