Flo talked briefly about this, and John Sandstrom mentioned that problems may arise from us being both a SIG of NMLA and with National. Fees from National are going up; we haven’t changed ours yet.
Flo mentioned and encouraged everyone to participate and spread the word about “el Día de los Niños y Libros.” She also gave out packets and showed New Mexico’s Governor’s Proclamation.
Scholarships, Hispanic Heritage Month, Bless Me Ultima (movie), Grants, Library Scholarships, and Noche de Cuentos. (Due to short of time, these were briefly discussed; for further information see Blog).
