CHICAGO - The Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered Round Table (GLBTRT) of the American Library Association (ALA) is continuing its year-long 40th anniversary celebrations with a social during ALA’s 2011 Midwinter Meeting in San Diego.
 
The social will take place at the Rock Bottom Brewery, 401 G Street, (619) 231-7000, from 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 8. Conference attendees and their guests are invited to attend.
 
The celebrations started during ALA’s 2010 Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. and will conclude with the 40th Book Award Gala at the 2011 Annual Conference in New Orleans.
 
Since 1970, GLBTRT has served the information needs of the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered professional library community, and the information and access needs of GLBT individuals at large. One of the first professional organizations of its kind, GLBTRT has overseen many milestones, including the establishment of the Stonewall Book Awards in 1971, the first and most enduring award series for GLBT literature.
 
Donations to support the Round Table and the 40th Anniversary celebrations will be gratefully accepted.
