On May 27, 2010, DCLA hosted its 2010 Annual Banquet at the Women's National Democratic Club. Our keynote speaker of the evening was American Library Association President-Elect, Roberta Stevens. At the event, DCLA awarded three $6,000 scholarships to active student members of the Association that are seeking their Masters Degrees in Library and Information Science.
On May 20, 2010, DCLA Members and guests got together to learn from each other about how to make the most of their ALA Conference experience. A handy tip sheet was developed for the event.
On May 1, 2010, DCLA members and friends volunteered to help DC Public School Libraries. They packed up 75 boxes of weeded materials at Wilson High School and at Anacostia High School, they cataloged about 250 books and sorted out what the School would keep after their renovation. Amazing job done!
