The ALA Zine Pavilion Need Yer Zines!

The ALA Annual Conference will be held in San Francisco this summer, during PRIDE weekend, look out SF! I will be volunteering at the Zine Pavilion, and will be there representing the Center for Sex & Culture, make sure you stop by our table at the Zine Pavilion!

The Zine Pavilion crew will also be exhibiting zines, but we need your donations to make it all possible! The donations will be raffled off at the end of the ALA to one, or more, lucky libraries to help them start or add to their zine collection. Show some library love by donating your zines!

The Zine Pavilion is also looking for exhibitors!

Seeking zinesters to table at the zine pavillion to be set up at the American Library Association [ALA] annual conference in San Francisco June 26th – June 29th.
A group of librarians have been given the opportunity to showcase zines on the convention floor at the ALA annual conference. We are currently seeking zinesters who want to showcase their wares.  The tables are FREE, as is a pass to get into the conference. Tables will be stationed around a “zine pavillion,” which will have a ton of zines [donations welcome!] which will be raffled off to one luck library. You can table for any amount of time that works with your schedule.  The purpose is to spread the love of zines and zinecollections in libraries to the greater library community. To get a sense of how we run the pavilion and for more information visit our tumblr: http://zinepavilion.tumblr. com/  You will be able to sell your work and will get a lot of exposure to librarians all over the United States.  zinepavilion@gmail.com

The Sexy Librarian’s Big Book of Erotica: Rose Caraway

I am extremely pleased to work at a library willing to try a little different programming! The South San Francisco Public Library is celebrating “Love in the Library” month! We have an array of traditional Valentine themed programs such as, Blind Date with a Book, and a Valentine Card Craft. However, we also have a few non-traditional programs happening, such as: Online Dating– we’ll help you set up your dating profile, even help you create the best profile photo to help find that special Valentine, we will be hosting a Digital Valentine Card Craft, and on Valentine’s Day we will be screening the cult classic film, Wild at Heart! As if that is not enough- we are also hosting the Sexy Librarian, Rose Caraway, and her Big Book of Erotica! Rose is an author, editor, blogger, podcaster, and audiobook narrator; and we are looking forward to hearing all about her life and career. Please join us on Saturday, February 7th at 2PM- and get your Love on at the Library!
