Request for raffle baskets donations for NHLA fall conference

The number of donations for the spring conference raffle at Attitash was overwhelming! We had 15 raffle baskets, and we raised over $500 for the fall business meeting. Thanks again to everyone who contributed.

If you, your library, co-op or other organization would like to donate a raffle basket for the upcoming fall raffle at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel Thursday, November 5th, that would be great! You can bring them with you to the meeting or route them to me at:

Spring Conference Raffle – Thanks!

Thanks to the generosity of New Hampshire librarians, $525 was raised through the spring conference raffle at Attitash. Thank you to all the libraries, individuals, sections of NHLA and co-ops that donated either items for the raffle baskets or entire baskets! Thank you also to the librarians who purchased tickets over the course of the two day event. Annually, the money raised is designated for a fall conference speaker. Thanks again!

Free public lecture by David Macaulay in Hanover on Saturday, May 2

Spend the day in Hanover on Saturday, May 2 and enjoy a free public lecture by artist and writer David Macaulay at 3:00pm, Alumni Hall, Hopkins Center. Please spread the word to library staff, trustees and the public. We have beautiful posters from Dartmouth to promote the event. Let us know if you would like us to send a poster to you on the van.
Howe Library, Lebanon Public Libraries, Norwich Public Library (VT) and The Friends of the Dartmouth College Library invite you to attend a public presentation by David Macaulay. The four libraries are cooperating to sponsor this event and to bring together as wide an audience as possible to enjoy David Macaulay’s program.
David Macaulay, MacArthur Fellow, Caldecott Award Medalist, and acclaimed artist and writer will present a public program about his work on Saturday, May 2 at 3:00pm in Alumni Hall, Hopkins Center at Dartmouth College in Hanover. A reception and book signing will follow at the Top of the Hop. This event is free and open to the public. We encourage all librarians, trustees and members of the public to attend.

David Macaulay’s books highlight art, architecture, history, engineering and design with a generous measure of humor and have broad appeal for adults and children. His work attracts the curious mind of any age and intrigues those who love to learn and explore. David Macaulay’s modest description of himself as an “explainer” belies the ease with which he conveys complex ideas through his detailed illustrations and precise use of words.

Macaulay’s most recent book is The Way We Work: Getting to Know the Amazing Human Body. Other well known titles are Cathedral, CityMosque, Pyramid and The Way Things Work.

Request for donations for NHLA raffle baskets

With the spring conference just two months away, it’s time for me to send out a plea for items for the raffle baskets. Last year we raised $600, which the NHLA board decided to earmark to fund fall conference speakers. If you’re feeling generous, please route your donations to:

Location: Lebanon

Van stop: Lebanon Public Library

If you could get them to me by May 18th, that would be great.

Thanks! Sean/NHLA Ways and Mean

NHLA Fall Raffle – thanks!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the raffle – those who contributed baskets/items for the baskets, and also those who bought raffle tickets. We raised approximately $150 from the fall raffle, in addition to the $600 from the spring conference raffle. The NHLA Board recently decided to earmark this money for speakers at the fall conference, so you’ll see a direct benefit from this fundraising if you attend the fall conferences in the future. Thanks again!

Request or plea for donations for NHLA fall conference raffle

At our last NHLA meeting, the board decided to use the money that we raise from our spring and fall conference raffles to bring in speakers that we might pass on otherwise due to cost factors. If your library, group, or just you yourself can donate some items for the fall conference raffle, you’ll be helping to bring in some great speakers! You can therefore expect these pleas for donations every six months or so (my apologies in advance).

Thanks again to everyone who donated items for the spring conference raffle. We raised over $600 from that effort. Also, thanks very much in advance to anyone who can send items for the upcoming raffle.

Thanks to the contributors for the raffle baskets!

Thanks to all the libraries, co-ops and groups within NHLA that contributed to the raffle baskets for this year’s spring conference.  We raised over $600 over the course of the two days of the conference.  Thanks also to all the librarians who bought raffle tickets – we couldn’t have done it without you too!

Raffle at the Annual Fall Business Meeting

Be sure to buy your raffle tickets at the Common Man in Plymouth, Thursday, November 1st.  You can buy tickets all morning, and the raffle will be held during the lunch break.  Thanks to all of the groups that are contributing baskets or other items for the raffle.  All of the proceeds go to NHLA.  See you in Plymouth!

Notes on Barnes and Noble Fundraiser

Thanks to all the libraries that helped to raise money for the Great Stone Face Award by distributing vouchers for the Barnes and Noble fundraiser!  Many librarians played a role in helping to get the word out about this two-day event on April 20th and 21st – the beautiful weather translated into slow business in general for the Barnes and Noble stores, but thanks again to all who participated!
