The third annual Association of Jewish Libraries Conference will be held June 18-20 at Temple Israel in Boston!
This is a special year for the Sydney Taylor awards. We are celebrating 50 years since the start of these awards. There will be a special body of work award presented at the awards dinner to Harold Grinspoon and PJ Library. On the Sunday previous to the conference, the SSC Division is sponsoring a special community program at the Boston Public Library. Any AJL member who is already in Boston at that time is welcome to join the event.
The keynote speak is Dan Cohen, who was the founding executive director of the Digital Public Library of America. This online site contains a wealth of information of value to L-12 and academic librarians, as well as to lifelong learners.
Some key sessions include:
- YIVO Institute for Jewish Research: The Role of Individuals in Rescuing Vilna Collections.
- Jonathan Brent, executive director of YIVO, will make a special presentation at Wednesday lunch to Dainius Ulpis, whose father, Antanas Ulpis, hid and preserved after the war books that survived the Nazi plundering of the YIVO Institute in Vilna.
