If you missed the LLOPS meeting last week, this blog post (and its embedded cuteness) may serve as consolation.

Foster Pepper hosted the meeting and invited Celeste Walsen, DVM and Ellen O’Neill-Stephens, JD of the Courthouse Dogs Foundation to speak to LLOPS members with their courthouse dog, Molly B. Their presentation covered how Ellen O’Neill-Stephens came up with the Courthouse Dogs Foundation and its touching impact across the country and beyond! The Courthouse Dogs Foundation was recently nominated for a HiiL ( Hague Institute for the Internationalisation of Law) Innovating Justice Award – winners will be announced next month!

If you’re still dying for more Courthouse Dogs (and who wouldn’t be?), consider attending the 2013 International Courthouse Dogs Conference in Seattle on November 8!

Last week, during our March meeting, many LLOPS members had the honor of meeting our AALL President, Catherine Lemann. In addition to particpating in a panel discussion on disaster planning, Ms. Lemann also congratulated our chapter on its 20th anniversary. Happy Anniversary LLOPS!

Why do we willingly hand over $7 for a mocha chai grande latte, but then balk at the ever increasing price of stamps? Join us next Monday, March 1st, here at K&L Gates, to hear library consultant and professional speaker, Pat Wagner. Her program: “Good, Cheap and Fast or Perfect, Free and Instantly: Understanding the ‘Iron’ Triangle'” will explore the interplay between Time, Money and Quality. How do we communicate our value to our customers when our stock-in-trade, information, has no inherent monetary value?
For those of you who have not heard Pat Wagner speak before, you’re in for a real treat. She has worked as a library trainer and consultant since 1978, speaking at major library conferences such as ALA, AALL, and MLA. LLOPS members who have heard her speak, can attest that she is a highly entertaining and engaging speaker. We’re fortunate to have her here, as part of her 2010 Pacific Northwest speaking tour.
Please email Barbara Swatt Engstrom by Wednesday, February 24th, if you would like to attend. The program runs from 3-4:00, followed by a social hour.
