Summer Reading Training Dates Set

So, one SRC ends for you, and another begins for me! We're already thinking long and hard about next year's SRC and I have the interns working hard on finding money, though you do all know that the district upped our budget to a whopping $30,000 next year, don't you? Well, if not, congrats! This is great news, and what a year to spend the money - on the arts!!

Next year, we're offering 2 trainings here in Pittsburgh (perhaps 2 more north and south, like Washington and Clarion) and we've arranged to hold them at the Pittsburgh Opera Offices in the Strip District. Wahoo! They have a beautiful meetings space and it's the OPERA! The dates and times are:
  • Friday, March 6th 9-4 PM
  • Friday, April 3rd 9-4 PM
The committee this year is Karen Schmidt-Ramsey (North Versailles, East), Kristin Burniston (Whitehall, South), Erin Tipping (AC Free, East), Jen Pickel (CLP, Central), Rebecca Long and Kathy Baldauf (Beaver) and myself and the ACLA interns. We're currently in search of a North rep, so if you'd like to volunteer on this super cool committee, let me know!
