After a day of sessions or workshops you will want to unwind. To keep the conversation and conference topics going after the street lights come on, please join us for our evening activities.
As in past years, we have two evening events planned for Computers in Libraries 2011 in addition to the Dine Arounds that run Sunday through Wednesday nights.
Whether this is your first Computers in Libraries or your 26th (Hi Marshall!) you will have a good time at the Gaming and Gadgets Petting Zoo and the Dead and Innovative Tech events.
- Gaming & Gadgets Petting Zoo — Sunday, March 20 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. — Join our gamers and gadget lovers for an evening of fun and playing. Bring your latest games and gadgets and try out each other’s. See if you are a guitar hero, winning Wii bowler/golfer, or rank as a dancing DDR expert. Led by gamer/gadget gurus Amy Buckland, McGill University, Scott Nicholson, Author, Everyone Plays at the Library, & Aaron Schmidt, D.C. Public Library, this evening is filled with fun, networking, and of course, learning and laughing. Don’t forget to bring your latest gadgets to share and explore. Refreshments included.
- Adding Value in Our Communities: Dead & Innovative Tech — Tuesday, March 22 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. — Join our famous evening of fun and learning. Hear from our authors, speakers and Computers in Libraries experts on their views of dead and innovative technologies affecting our libraries and communities now and as we create the future. This year, see if our speakers can give their presentations in a pecha kucha-style lighting round! Open to all. Enjoy cookies, coffee, and lots of laughs.
- Dine Arounds — Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday nights — Join your colleagues, fellow conference attendees, and your hosts for terrific conversation, dinner on the town, and lots of fun you won’t soon forget! Chat about the day’s events and topics of interest. Choose from a range of wonderful food and dining expeditions to great restaurants in the D.C. area. Sign up online for the excursion of your choice. (You pay for your own dinner but share a table with other CIL participants.) Lists will be maintained online, and during the conference copies will be on the bulletin boards in the registration area at the Hilton Washington. Groups will meet either in that area before going to the restaurant together or will meet at the restaurant.
