*Community and** Fundamentals*

*Sponsored by Leadership Directories, TRAK Records, Safari Books Online,
and LexisNexis*

DC/SLA has had a fabulous 2013! Celebrate all our success this year and
register today for the *DC/SLA Holiday Party Annual Meeting*!

There'll be lots of time for catching up with old friends and meeting new
ones while we enjoy fantastic food and drink at the beautiful University
Club of Washington, DC. During a brief business meeting, *DC/SLA President
Marie Kaddell * will recognize all that we've accomplished this year, we'll
thank the 2013 Board for all that they've done and welcome the 2014 Board,
and we'll recognize our outstanding membership with awards!

But that’s not all! Since this  year our focus is on *Community and
Fundamentals* we’ll also be hosting* a book drive* for the *US Tribal
Libraries*. There are over 280 tribal libraries throughout the United
States, including 37 tribal college libraries.  They serve as community
centers, tribal archives, reading rooms, and homework centers for specific
American Indian tribes.  Many of these libraries are supported by the
Association of Tribal Archives, Libraries, and Museums, but are in great
need of materials to share with their communities.

*DATE: * Monday, December 2, 2012

*TIME:* 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
*LOCATION:*  The University Club of Washington, DC Metro:  Farragut North
