Second GLA Savannah Area Meet-up - March 14, 2016

The librarians and staff at Armstrong State University's Lane Library look forward to hosting the 2nd GLA meet-up on Monday, March 14, 2016, from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm in the Learning Commons, the newest library space on campus.

This meet-up is for to all library staff and is an opportunity to meet fellow library professionals in an informal setting and learn more about getting involved in GLA.

From our last meeting it is clear we are a diverse group, but chances are that book displays are something we all why not share ideas?   There are plenty of display screens in the Learning Commons so we will all have a chance to mingle, munch, and muse as we admire each others' inspiration and creativity!

Please send pictures of your display(s) (in digital format) to Caroline Hopkinson by March 9th.  Include any information about purpose, audience, or success of display that you want to share!  Email and include GLA display in the subject line. 

About the meeting place:
The Learning Commons provides access to cutting edge technology and group study space in an environment designed to enhance and encourage collaborative learning.  Each year, Library Journal recognizes the most outstanding library building projects from around the country. In 2013 building projects were selected for qualities critical to all-purpose spaces that "by virtue of their vision and design," provide "something for everyone." Armstrong's Learning Commons was one of 14 academic libraries chosen for this honor.  Learning Commons Librarian Aimée Reist will be available to talk to interested attendees about the technology, green design, and how students use the space.

Directions and parking:
Traveling on Abercorn Street (Highway 204) enter campus on Arts Drive (the north entrance to campus) and turn right onto Library Drive.  Park in any space on Library Drive or in the parking lot at the end of Library Drive.  Signs will direct you to the Learning Commons.

RSVP to Judith Garrison at for munchies and parking!  She may have to send out parking passes to everyone who RSVP to comply fully with their campus police.

Light refreshments will be served. Hope to see you there!
