Mini Scholarship Opportunity for Reaching Forward 2010
Spring Break is upon us! Also upcoming on April 30 is the 2010 Reaching Forward Conference. This conference is specifically designed for library staff in academic, public, school, and special libraries. We also have one LTA Advisory Board member on the program committee as well as at least one soon-to-be graduate of the LTA program. It is a wonderful opportunity to meet your peers and attend some fun workshops throughout the day. Here's the program brochure for more information on the sessions and location.

Currently, registration is $125 plus the cost of parking. The College of Lake County LTA program always has a booth at this event where we provide information on our program to conference attendees. If you'd like to attend the conference but are concerned about the cost consider one of the two mini-scholarships I'm offering to current LTA students.

I need two students who will help me man the LTA program booth at the conference. You can share your experience as a student with others who might be interested in our program. In exchange for about three hours of your time that day you'll each receive $75 towards your costs of attending (about half the cost of registration and parking). Below is an idea of the booth schedule that would be required (conference begins at 8:00am).

  • 7:30 - 9:00am Set-up and booth time (student 1, 2 & Anne)
  • 9:00 - 10:00am Keynote speaker (Anne only)
  • 10:00-10:30am Booth time (student 1, 2 & Anne)
  • 10:30-11:45am Booth time - workshop session 1 (student 1 & Anne)
  • 11:30-12:45pm Booth time - workshop session 2 (student 2 & Anne)
  • 12:45-2:00pm Lunch and program (Anne only)
  • 2:00-3:15pm Workshop session 3 and closing (Anne only)

You will not be required to work during the keynote speaker or during lunch and afterwards. Sound like a good deal to you? Email me at by April 16th.
