    Dear LAUW members,

    Thank you for your quick action yesterday. It has enabled us to finalize the letter and send it today.

    Changing to a blog

    Hello, this is the new official blog for the Librarians’ Association of the University of Waterloo.

    The next couple posts are going to be transferred from the old website – I will identify the date they were actually posted in the title, and they will be in the category “Archive: pre July 2013”.

    Thanks for your patience! Enjoy this incredible promotion for the Seattle public library – but don’t get any ideas because shelving would be a pain.
