CABL members were out in full force at the recent 2013 AzLA Annual Conference “Libraries in the eSociety” held in Fountain Hills from November 13th-15th.
In the exhibit hall, CABL members worked the MLGSCA booth promoting both organizations to attendees.
Many of our own CABL members also presented posters at the conference. At the second poster session five of the six posters were authored or co-authored by CABL members! Check out the image collection below for visual proof:

As some of you may know, the deadline for the MPLA Leadership Institute is fast approaching on November 1st.
The MPLA Leadership Institute is an amazing professional development opportunity for library employees in the 12-state MPLA region (includes Arizona) where you can network and improve your leadership skills, among other things.
The 9th MPLA Leadership Institute will be facilitated by nationally known organizational development consultant Maureen Sullivan. Ms. Sullivan has over 25 years of experience in leadership development and is the Past President of the American Library Association. She helped establish the ACRL/Harvard Leadership Institute and is a faculty member for its annual program.

The Friends of the Phoenix Public Library has an outstanding service program for those CABL members who might wish to participate.
Friends of the PPL are collecting withdrawn and unwanted books, journals, and multi-media items. These items are then sold at the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library’s annual sales. Unsold books are distributed to other organizations that can make use of the materials. Friends of the PPL will pick up boxed items and no list of donated items is necessary.
This is a wonderful opportunity to support the Friends of the Phoenix Public Library and to get rid of your unwanted books, journals, and CDs and save them from the trash heap.
