Summertime is upon us and many have even begun classes again; don’t forget to take some time to relax though! There is an event coming up that I’m sure many of the GSLIS students and faculty would be interested in attending. So, “MARC your calendars for Saturday, May 18, 2013! The Librarian Pub Crawl was created to promote the importance of libraries and literacy, while supporting charities in the process. Both librarians and fans of literature are invited to participate. Join in the fun by dressing as your favorite literary character or as a librarian. Participants will be entered into a raffle, they’ll receive discounts at participating bars throughout the night and, at the end of the night, prizes will be awarded for the best costumes.”
It’s ten bucks, and you can win a trophy! Check out Librarian Pub Crawl for more details.
