OC REFORMA Booth: CLA Highlights

REFORMA CLA 002

The OC REFORMA chapter would like to thank all of the REFORMA members who volunteered to staff the booth for this year’s California Library Association’s (CLA) annual conference held at the Pasadena Convention Center.¬† The booth, located in the general convention center floor, provided local REFORMA chapter members a wonderful opportunity to provide information to librarians from all areas of California–from Northern California, Central California, and Southern California–about library services for Latinos and the Spanish speaking.

A wide variety of handouts and pamphlets covering library services for Latinos and the Spanish speaking were available at the OC REFORMA booth as well as scholarship information for library school students.

In fact, we were very delighted to see so many librarians approach the the OC REFORMA sponsored booth and express a deep interest in learning how they can better provide appropriate and relevant services to the growing Latino and Spanish populations in their own communities.

Questions kept on coming all morning and afternoon.

The pictures above show the popularity of the OC REFORMA booth with CLA members, filling an important space at this year’s conference by giving OC REFORMA members, along with members from the LA and Northern CA chapters respectively, the unique opportunity to provide valuable¬† information to conference attendees about library services for the large and growing Latino and Spanish speaking population in California.
