May Talk and Taste

The forecast looked dark and grim on Friday but was soon relieved by an evening of camaraderie and fine Parisian food and drink. The PBCLA Talk & Taste at Le Rendevz-vous was a wonderful success! We were fortunate to welcome several new and familiar faces to our informal gathering.
If you missed out on the fun, don't worry! Plans are already underway for the next PBCLA Talk & Taste. Stay tuned to our social media and remember: "Mangez bien, riez souvent, aimez beaucoup"

April Talk and Taste

A small but dedicated group of "Talk & Tasters" met up at the fun and funky Brewhouse Gallery in Lake Park to mull over the ins and outs of mentoring new library professionals.  The group fortunately consisted of a few former mentees and mentors with the Palm Beach County Library System.  The venue provided a good mix of tasty indulgences, common areas to gather/chat and a wide mix of games to easily distract all of the "talk & tasters".  An epic game of Jenga by a skilled group of players was the perfect distraction!  In keeping with our theme, there was a little bit of "mentoring" between players!  A fun and worthwhile night for all!  Be on the lookout for our next event!

Scrabble Tournament

Event Recap:

Scrabble fever was in the air at the North Palm Beach Library where the Palm Beach County Library Association was hosting its inaugural Scrabble Tournament Fundraiser!  Sixteen scrabble players, from novice to skilled, gathered to put their word knowledge, spelling abilities and strategic playing to the test.  The tournament began with four groups of four squaring off and then the overall top four scorers moved on to the final round to determine a champion.  To help soothe the players, tasty samples from the PBCLA Cookbook were featured!  Be sure to be on the lookout for our next tournament!

Talk & Taste

Event Recap:

“Friday night’s Talk & Taste at Howley’s might be our biggest event yet! Information Professionals from different county, city, special and academic libraries networked over dinner and drinks. The atmosphere was both warm (despite the cold front!) and inviting and the conversations were as varied and stimulating as our attendees.

 If you made it for the event, we hope you benefited from our free exchange of stories, ideas and fellowship. If you didn't, we hope you will be able to make it next time or to any of PBCLA's other exciting events in the coming months."
