Guy: I will need a room Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. I would also like to discuss literary maps, literacy and literary prizes, LAL updates, and NBF plans. Looking forward to learning what's in store for the future and hearing about success stories from the field. Best, Amy Amy E.

COSLA will be holding a meeting at the Library that day as well. The Reading-Promotion Partners meeting on the following day, Thursday, May 10, will be a daylong conference on literacy, tentatively featuring a keynote speaker and panel discussions on various topics relating to literacy. You are all invited to this meeting as well. Because Monday and Tuesday, May 7-8 are National Library Legislative days, you may have plans to be in town for those as well. We are hoping to secure a block of low-cost rooms for your stay and need to know your intentions. Could you please let us know by Tuesday, Jan. 30, whether you intend to join us and for which days you need a hotel room. This is not a firm commitment on your part, but this will allow us to move forward now on securing low-cost rooms. Also, please send us your wishes/ideas for meeting topics on May 9. We are working on an agenda now and will send out as soon as possible. Thank you, Guy Lamolinara Communications Officer Center for the Book Library of Congress 101 Independence Ave. S.E.
