September Program: Tour and Talk at the Braille Institute’s San Diego Center Library & Happy Hour, 9/23

On the afternoon of Tuesday, September 23, beginning at 4:00pm, SLA-SD is coordinating a tour and talk at the Braille Institute Library in its San Diego Center location, led by librarian Louise Zuckerman. SLA members and nonmembers alike are invited to join us in what is sure to be an enlightening program! This is a great event for anyone curious about nontraditional library services, reaching disabled populations, and niche collections. This unique library and service facility is located in University Town Center area of La Jolla, just north of the UTC mall, with plenty of free parking on facility grounds.

Information about the Braille Institute:

The Braille Institute is a nonprofit organization whose mission is “to eliminate barriers to a fulfilling life caused by blindness and severe sight loss.”

The San Diego Center location provides many free services to individuals with sight loss who reside in San Diego and Imperial Counties. Services include adult classes, youth programming, low vision rehabilitation consultations, and a robust library. Within the library, services include browsing collections, a patron computer, wifi, reader’s advisory, CCTV magnification stations, digital resources, and more!

After the tour, which will last approximately one hour, all are invited to attend a Happy Hour at nearby Seasons 52 in the UTC shopping center at 5:00pm! Not able to make it to the Braille Institute but want to stop by for Happy Hour? Great! There will be some great conversation with library colleagues, plus excellent food and drink specials!

SLA-SD Samples Local Brew

Yesterday, SLA-SD got together for a fun networking happy hour at Ballast Point in Scripps Ranch, where attendees got to taste some of the brewery’s craft beers and take a tour of the Ballast Point facilities.

Ballast Point brewing started in 1996 as the “back room brewery” at the Home Brew Mart.  It has grown to 25,000 square feet on Old Grove Road in Scripps Ranch where they brew, bottle, and sell craft beers, specialty beers, and six distilled spirits.  During our tour the brewery workers were bottling Ballast Point Big Eye IPA.  Based on sales volume, Ballast Point is the third largest craft brewer in San Diego County and the 46th largest in the country.  Ballast has a new production facility under construction off Miramar Road.  The new facility will have a chilling room (cooler) as big as the entire floor of the Old Grove production area.

Happy hour events allow group members (and non-members!) to get together and talk about topics of interest in a casual environment and get to know each other better to strengthen our chapter as a whole. A good time was had by all.

Thanks to Cindy Shamel and Ali Hennessey for organizing such a great event! Look for updates regarding the next SLA-SD happy hour coming soon.

Smiles all around!
