Meet American Libraries Association President Loida Garcia-Febo at the Seattle Public Library January 28

Join The Seattle Public Library at a public reception to welcome American Library Association president Loida Garcia-Febo to Seattle from 5-6pm, Monday, January 28 at the Central Library, 1000 Fourth Ave., Level 4, Washington Mutual Foundation Meeting Room 1, 206-386-4636.

Garcia-Febo is on a national tour to promote 'Libraries = Strong Communities,' a campaign that highlights how libraries support the educational, cultural and economic vitality of cities. 'As cornerstones of democracy, libraries empower users to make informed decisions by providing free access to information,' said Garcia-Febo. 'Libraries provide more than just books. They support community engagement and the delivery of new services that connect closely with patrons' needs. As libraries transform we should seize every opportunity to showcase their magnificent work.'

Garcia-Febo has served the library profession both domestically and internationally. She is president of Information New Wave, is a nonprofit organization that works to enhance educational opportunities for underserved populations in the U.S. and developing countries. She is also active in the International Federation of Library Associations and The National Association to Promote Library and Information Services to Latinos and the Spanish-Speaking.

After the reception, Garcia-Febo will give opening remarks at the Library's 'Your Business - Start Smart' entrepreneur workshop from 6-8pm.

Library events are free and everyone is welcome. Registration is not required. Parking is available in the Central Library's garage for $7 after 5 p.m. Refreshments will be provided.

For more information, call 206-386-4636 or visit www.spl.org. For ADA accommodations, please contact: leap@spl.org.
