The Hotel Murano, Tacoma, WA
Wednesday, November 1 - Saturday, November 4, 2017
The Conference Planning Committee has chosen a theme for WLA's 2017 Annual Conference in Tacoma: “Libraries Through the Looking-Glass.”
Tacoma has a vibrant glass arts community, including the Museum of Glass in walking distance from the Hotel Murano, which itself has an impressive glass art collection on display throughout the hotel and conference facility. Also within walking distance is the Chihuly Bridge of Glass and an Alice in Wonderland public art mural. The committee also gravitated towards the idea of libraries reflecting back upon themselves, a core purpose of the annual conference.
Come out to WESTPORT, WASHINGTON on June 23th, 24th, and 25th, 2017, for the 16th annual RUSTY SCUPPER’S PIRATE DAZE.
Pirate author, Marti Melville and Steampunk author, Ren Cummins will be signing books and meeting the public.
CANNED FOOD DONATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED THROUGHOUT THE SHOW TO FEED THE NEEDY, COURTESY OF THE WESTPORT FOOD BANK.
Also, it's kind of Ren's birthday that weekend, so come celebrate with him for multiple reasons!
