What to Bring to OLSSI

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

  1. You are invited to dress in medieval costume for the Mead and Greet on Sunday after registration.
  2. The live meeting of the OLSSI Book Club will be about The Bad-Ass Librarians of Timbuktu: And Their Race to Save the World’s Most Precious Manuscripts by Joshua Hammer. Bring your copy if you wish.

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