CPC Tour and Brainstorming Event!
Last semester the ALA devoted much of our fundraising efforts to support the small library located at the Western New York Children’s Psychiatric Center. The CPC library is interesting due to its dual role as a school and recreational library that is also housed in a medical setting. If would like to read more about the CPC library, check out this link: http://www.buffalo.edu/news/10732
UB ALA will be conducting a tour of the CPC Library and facilities as well as the possibility of performing some much-needed maintenance since the library receives little funding and cannot afford a library staff. We have also been able to use hours at the CPC towards the Observation & Participation hours for SLMS in the past, however, they would need to be approved by Sue Janzcak.
The tour will be on Thursday, February 18th at 2:30 p.m. The WNY CPC is located at 1010 East & West Road in West Seneca and we are always open to setting up a carpool depending on interest. If you are interested or have any questions please email me at jessicacasamassa at yahoo dot com.
