Savannah Area Librarians Meet-up - August 11, 2016

The Georgia Library Association's Savannah Area Meet-up group is excited to announce our third meet-up.  It will be hosted by Live Oak Public Libraries.

When:   Thursday, August 11, 2016
Time:     3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Where:  Southwest Chatham Library Branch 14097 Abercorn Street Savannah, GA 31419

If you are near Chatham, Bryan, Bullock, Effingham, Liberty, McIntosh counties, this is for you!

This meet-up is opened to all library staff (librarians, media specialists, media clerks, etc.) and is an opportunity to meet fellow library professionals in an informal setting and learn more about getting involved in GLA.

The guest speaker for this event will be Clinton Edminster.  Clinton is the Executive Director, Art Rise Savannah, INC, and Owner and Founder, of Starlandia Creative Supply, LLC.  He will be speaking about the arts as a tool to bridge communities together and the power of collaborative thinking for higher impact programming and simply having a better time in your own life.

Bio: Originally from Homer, Alaska, Clinton came to Savannah to study at the art college in 2009. After deciding that college was not for him, he started volunteering with Desotorow Gallery. Eventually becoming the Executive Director in 2013, Edminster began implementing a two-year strategy to transform the small organization into Art Rise Savannah. In June 2015, Edminster opened Starlandia Creative Supply on Bull Street, a new and used art supply store. Edminster is also the President of Star Council, a graduate of the Georgia Center for Nonprofits Momentum Program, a recipient of Savannah Magazine’s Generation Next Award, and a proud resident of the Starland District.

Refreshments will be served. Hope to see you there!
