TCACLA Fall Meeting

St. Peder’s Evangelical Lutheran Church
4600 East 42nd Street

The theme of the Fall meeting is “Selection.” Our keynote speaker, Jessica Zillhart, will talk about selection of religious materials in the public library system. Jessica is currently a Materials Selection Librarian at the St. Paul Public Library. She’s also a member of Ebooks Minnesota’s collection development task force and she’s involved with the Digital Public Library of America’s Content Curation Corps for their Open Ebooks Initiative. Jessica previously was employed by Anoka County Library as a Youth Materials Selector and by Mackin Educational Resources as a Collection Development Specialist. She received her Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science at the University of Wisconsin.
After Jessica’s presentation, we’ll learn about Magers & Quinn Booksellers’ services for churches and hear about new books on two social justice issues. We’ll end with a roundtable discussion of how we decide what materials to add to our own libraries, both via purchase and donation. As always, there will be a book swap, a chance to visit the church library, and time to network with other librarians.
