Happy New Year! The ARLIS/NA Ontario Executive is pleased to announce that the Chapter has received a $600 donation from the proceeds of the 2012 Ontario College of Art and Design University Library Book Sale. This figure represents the profits raised from the incredibly generous donation of books from Karen McKenzie and the Art Gallery of Ontario in support of our Chapter. Additionally, a huge thank you to all who attended our Holiday Party, and to Margaret English and Effie Patelos for hosting this event. A significant portion of funds raised from the OCAD University Library Movember Vintage Flea and Book Sale, as well as the Holiday Party, will be donated to both the upcoming ARLIS/NA conference in Pasadena and the Chapter Travel Award. Details regarding the application process will be formalized and announced shortly.
Following the success of the Movember Vintage Flea, the OCAD University Library is hosting a Valentine’s themed Vintage Fundraiser. We are currently recruiting donations, and welcome everything from vintage clothing, jewelry, and wares, to funky household items. Donations can be dropped off at the Dorothy H. Hoover Library Circulation desk (113 McCaul St., Room 1215, Level 2), or by arrangement with Stephen Spong (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The sale will take place on February 12th and 13th from 9 AM to 5 PM in the main lobby of OCAD U (100 McCaul St.). Please visit http://vintagevalentinesale.tumblr.com/ for a very modest sampling of the treasures we’ve received so far. We will be updating this website regularly to showcase all the generous donations available for purchase at the sale.
