Book Exchange and Holiday party!

Hi all,

I'm excited to announce that this year LISSO will be hosting a book exchange

We encourage all students and (faculty are invited too) to sign up via Elfster.  This book swap is optional, we have listed a spending cap of a maximum 15 dollars. However, this does not mean that you are required to spend 15 dollars--  used books are the best books, or feel free to exchange a book from your personal shelf. Depending on the location of who you draw, you can swap the book in person or snail mail! 

Names will be drawn on Tuesday, November 17th and the book should be mailed to be received by December 18th. 

Here is the link to the Elfster account to sign up for the exchange

This is the first time I’ve used this site, so please feel free to email me with any problems or questions!

LISSO will be hosting the annual Holiday party December 12th, at 12:00-3:00 in the Niles Gallery which is located in the Lucille Little Fine Arts Building. Feel free to bring board games, snacks, and holiday cheer to share with others!  It is a great time to take a break for a few hours at the end of the semester. 

If you want to bring snacks to share, here is a link to a Google sheet:

November Updates and Upcoming LISSO events

Hi all LISSOers!

I hope you're having a wonderful November! I just scheduled for classes next semester and I'm pretty excited about taking Oral History. Yay.

We had a great time at Pick-It-Up and will put the funds earned to good use for ALA/LISSO stuff.

Here are some updates:

If you're local and interested we will be meeting on Saturday, 11/14 at 2:30 for a tour of the Central library!  Maybe I'll pay my overdue fines while I'm there.

This month the theme for book club is GRAPHIC NOVELS! We will meet on at 7:00pm on December 3rd at Josie's in Chevy Chase for our meeting-- as always, you are welcome to post on the book club blog about what you a reading. It is fun, I swear!

Feel free to email with any questions!

Keep your eyes peeled for holiday party and book exchange updates!
