Libraries Are Such a Drag! A 2016 Calendar Fundraiser for the Beard Scholarship

If you love libraries like we love libraries then get yourself, your family and your coworkers a new 2016 Libraries Are Such a Drag calendar to kick off the New Year.
All proceeds are donated to the Beard Scholarship for library school students in Georgia. The Beard Scholarship is made possible by friends and colleagues of the late Charles Edward Beard who served libraries and the library profession for almost 40 years. The scholarship provides financial assistance toward completing a Master's degree in library science for candidates who show strong potential to inspire and motivate their peers in the
profession and in professional associations.

Each month of this fun calendar has an image of a library patron posing in book drag with
their favorite book and sharing why they love the library. The calendar runs from January
2016 to May of 2017.

Calendars are $20 each and can be purchased at Java Monkey, 425 Church St, Decatur,
30030 or online for $25 via PayPal at:
