Donate to the NorCal Chapter ARLIS "endowment" fund!

Do you love your local ARLIS Chapter?  Do you want more events, professional development opportunities, and better snacks at meetings?  If so, please consider donating to the Chapter’s “endowment fund”!

As you all know, our small chapter struggles to maintain the $1000 bank balance that is necessary to avoid monthly banking fees.  This makes it difficult to fund all of the events that we would like to host to support our members and help our Chapter to grow.  We would love to have a cushion of $1000 in our bank account that would allow us to use annual revenue on Chapter activities.  We are asking our members to consider donating amounts of $20, $50, or $100 to our “endowment” so that we can stabilize our bank account.  The PayPal link on the Chapter’s website has been updated so that you can make a donation. Please consider supporting the Chapter if you are able.

I hope to see you all at the happy hour event at William Stout Books on 6/25!

If you're planning to go to ALA in San Francisco, please join the ARLIS/NA Northern California Chapter for a welcome party on Thursday, June 25th, 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. at William Stout Architectural Books. Mingle with fellow art librarians and enjoy browsing a nice selection of architectural books over a glass of wine and light snacks.

Our host, William Stout Architectural Books, is just a short walk from the conference site at 804 Montgomery St. (cross street Jackson St.). We hope you can squeeze this event into your conference schedule! Please RSVP to if you plan to attend.
And if you have time on Friday, you won't want to miss a (free!) participatory art-making event at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts with artist/librarian Kate Connell. June 26, 3-7:30 p.m., in the Room for Big Ideas at YBCA (in the Yerba Buena Gardens across from the Moscone Center conference site).
