Great news!
APLA treasurer Penny Logan sent a cheque for $1076.18 to CODE this morning, the proceeds from the APLA Grow a Library account.  This will bring the total for the Mojo Reading Room campaign to $2807.18, which nicely exceeds our target of $2500. 
Soon you will see a full virtual bookshelf at the CODE site for the Mojo Reading Room, our adopted Ethiopian library, at .
Thanks very much to the APLA executive for their continuing support, to Penny Logan for filing various charitable status documents and closing out the Grow a Library account, and to the 2006 - 2008 Grow a Library committees, chaired by Jennifer Richard (they raised the $1076.18 mentioned above).  Thank you as well as last year's 2009 committee members including:  Jessica Babineau (Dal SIM), Sue Adams (STFX), Mary Landry (Eastern Counties Regional Library), Sarah Gladwell (Saint John Free Public Library), Jennifer Richard (Acadia), Su Cleyle (MUN), Lorraine Jackson (MUN), Tanja Harrison (NSCAD), and Donald Moses (UPEI).  And finally, thank you to the many, many APLA members who made donations online, purchased $5 badge stickers at the conference, and offered to help with the campaign.  Your generosity made all the difference!
There will be an announcement about the choice for the 2010 CODE library coming soon!
