The American Airpower Museum Welcomes DASL Members for Annual Luncheon

January 4, 2016

On Friday, December 11, 2015 DASL held its Annual Luncheon at the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport.

The event kicked-off with guided tours of the museum, and thanks to the beautiful weather, attendees got to view the spectacular array of World War II aircrafts indoors and outdoors too!  As the tours concluded, attendees gathered for a brief trivia game (to test our library knowledge), which was followed by lunch.

Here’s a look at the day’s events:

Thanks to everyone who participated!  We look forward to seeing you next year!

New York Times Best Selling Author to Speak at the Long Island Library Conference

April 14, 2015
James McGrath Morris

James McGrath Morris

Local Librarians- if you’re planning to attend the Long Island Library Conference on Thursday, May 7th, please consider DASL’s session with distinguished author James McGrath Morris.  His most recent book is The Eye on the Struggle: Ethel Payne, The First Lady of the Black Press. Here’s a link to the NY Times review. 

Morris will discuss how biography and narrative non-fiction books wouldn’t be possible without libraries, librarians, archives, and archivists.  This session is at 10:30AM. The official program title is: The Unappreciated Backstage Role of Libraries in the Cultural Richness of American Books.

Here’s a quote from the NYT article: “Morris’s fine biography shows that through Ethel Payne’s life, the black press helped change America and the world. ‘I could not divorce myself from the heart of the problem, because I was part of the problem.’ Today’s social media activists walk in the first lady’s footsteps.”

Space is limited, so arrive early for his presentation. You won’t want to miss this world renowned author and speaker.
