nyla-conference-2011If you’re planning to be at the New York Library Association conference in Saratoga in November, consider volunteering to help out. It’s a great way to meet people, give back to the association and get a voucher as a thank you.

Details below from MaryAnne Waltz:


The New York Library Association is looking for volunteers to help out at this year’s Annual Conference and Trade Show to be held in Saratoga Springs from November 2 to November 5. Volunteers are needed for the following areas: NYLA Store, NYLA Registration Desk, and NYLA Trade Show/Exhibit Hall. Volunteers are currently needed for the following days:
