SAVE IT FOR THE FUTURE!
As part of its Centennial Celebration, NCLA is soliciting materials for a time capsule that will be opened at the Association’s 150th anniversary in 2054. The time capsule will include the program, commemorative booklet, guest book, and videos from this year’s centennial celebration. These items will document the Association in its centennial year, but we also want to document member libraries in 2004. Please make your library a part of the history of libraries in the state by donating something to the NCLA time capsule.
What should you donate for the time capsule? One or two items that document the achievements of your library, or that exemplify the programming that your library is doing, or that show the challenges that your library faces in 2004. Official reports, publicity brochures, library instructional materials, or a special book or other library object are all good choices. Please choose things that have special meaning for your library and your community so that our time capsule will reflect the diversity that is North Carolina.
When you select your contributions, keep these guidelines in mind
- We can only accept one or two items per library
- Small is beautiful. Please don’t submit anything larger than 12 x 14 x 6 inches
- Use acid-free paper if at all possible
- Please submit media such as compact discs in containers
- Include a statement with each item that explains its significance to your library
Bring your items with you to the conference November 9-13 in Charlotte. They will be collected at the registration booth Wednesday November 10 and Thursday November 11 and the donated items will be displayed in the exhibit hall on Friday November 12.
