Are you interested in learning how others manage a library gifts and exchange program? Interested in using your gifts to raise funds for the library? If so, please plan to attend the ALCTS Gifts and Exchange Interest Group meeting on Saturday, July 11, from 8-10:00 am at the Palmer House Hotel in the Kimball Room.
The focus of the interest group is to provide a forum to discuss legal issues, public relations matters, and administrative procedures of operating a gifts and exchange program. A highlight of this year's meeting is a discussion from Better World Books on how they can help libraries manage gift materials and also how they can assist with collecting materials as a way to recycle unwanted books.
ALCTS Acquisitions Gifts and Exchange Interest Group will meet on Saturday, 7/11/09 8-10 am Palmer House Kimball Room.
