*During this time, feel free to brown bag or leave for lunch. No meal prep or storage options available.

We apologize for any inconvenience.

We will reconvene for the SHoWLE regular monthly meeting consisting of what will surely be a lively discussion of the morning programming. (Light refreshments & of course COOKIES)

***Note the library doesn’t open until 9 AM so we will be starting a little later than 9 AM.

The AHA conference is June 7th through the 9th with programs streaming on the web each day. For more info on the conference and to register (although it isn’t required to join us on Saturday) go to:

During the conference portion of the time (9 am to noon), you can come for one, two, or all the scheduled presentations. Or if you can’t be with us before 1 PM then feel free to just come for our group meeting at 1. We won’t lock the doors at 9 AM 🙂
