Meals and Registration
We are using a new registration system for our meeting. In the past, we had no idea who or how many people might attend the meeting. This made it very difficult to set up the venue and plan for refreshments and lunch service. While there are no registrations costs and the meeting is open to the public, we ask that you register by September 23.
For the General Meeting on October 5, 2019, box lunches are available for purchase through the LCSNA website before the meeting. The cost for lunch is $20. Be sure to place your order by September 23.
For Sunday, October 6, we ask you to register & pay for the Mad Hatter Day Tea Party by September 23 and register [free] for the LCSNA Keepsake printing event at the Common Press at the Fisher Fine Arts Library.
Several hotels are close to the Penn Library and received good Penn staff recommendations. However, there will not be a not a block of rooms reserved. Below are several suggestions. Contact them by phone and say you are attending a Penn Libraries event and there should be a discounted rate.
Often members have items from their collections for sale or to give away, such as books and artwork. We will update the site to let you know if items can be sold on site. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested.
