What to Bring: 2018 Edition

There are a couple of new details on the list of items you may wish to bring for OLSSI this year:

  1. At the Readers Advisory Roundtable we will invite you to share a book that you recommend, so you are welcome to bring either the book or title and author.
  2. Instead of the knitting and crochet session we have had previously, we will have time for crafters of all kinds to gather. Some crafting materials will be provided, but you are also invited to bring a project of your own.

As in last year we will provide bed sheets, but you must bring your own blanket, pillow, and bath towel.

Up ‘Til 4

Our Sunday afternoon and evening will feature the local band Up ‘Til 4! They will be playing during the Meet and Greet and then again after dinner.

From their Facebook profile: “Up ‘Til 4 started out as a trio, but is now a full 5 piece band (6 when Jammin’ Paul can make it). They cover music from the folk/rock singer/song writer era, plus a few originals. Influences include Crosby, Stills, Nash, Neil Young, Grateful Dead, Jackson Browne, James Taylor, Carol King, and other classic rock music are all on the menu at any gig.”

Grand Prize

The grand prize giveaway at the end of this year’s OLSSI will be a Huawei MediaPad T3 tablet with a 7″ Display, a 1.3 GHz Intel processor, 1 GB RAM, and 16 GB onboard storage!

To win you must be present for the drawing after our closing speaker on Tuesday afternoon. Good luck!

Other Site Features

As you browse around for this year’s conference information, take a look also at some additional features we offer, including information about library Certifications, our CafePress store, and the FAQ. The FAQ may be particularly useful for those who have attended OLSSI before and wonder why we do things the way we do.
