Summer Refresher

KASL GIVES BACK at Summer Refresher 23 Join us for an impactful opportunity titled "KASL Gives Back" at Summer Refresher. We are coming together as a community of librarians to make a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by the devastating floods in Eastern Kentucky. Last summer, libraries in the region faced significant challenges due to the overwhelming tasks brought on by the floods. As a result, many donated books have remained uncataloged, preventing their availability to eager readers. This is where we can step in and lend our expertise. During this session, we will embark on a service project aimed at cataloging these donated books. By pooling our collective knowledge, experience, and skills, we can accomplish an incredible amount of work. Be a part of restoring access to knowledge and fostering a love for reading in the affected communities. Please consider taking a bit of your conference day to contribute to this project!
