Join us for the coolest party of the ALA Annual Conference! It's not too
late to purchase tickets for the Video Round Table Gala. This year's bash
is at the National Film Board of Canada's new "Mediatheque" on Sunday, June
22 from 6-10 pm. The Mediatheque (http://www.nfb.ca/mediatheque/en/) is
located at 150 John St. in Toronto (convenient to the ALA bus route).

This year's theme is "An Evening of Canadian Animation," and we'll be joined
by award-winning animators Wendy Tilby and Amada Forbis (ALA Adult Notable:
"When the Day Breaks"), Marine Chartrand (ALA YALSA Notable: "Black Soul"),
Vincent Gauthier, and Alison Loader. There will be a delicious buffet, bar,
and door prizes. The featured animation will be showcased on video monitors
during the meal and by 35mm projection in the NFB theatre afterwards.

Tickets are just $20 for VRT members and $25 ($37 Canadian) for non-members
-- a real bargain for such a terrific setting, entertaining speakers, meal,
drink, and schmoozing with video fanatics. Bring non-video librarians as a
guest -- we're a friendly bunch and are looking for media converts. Tickets
may be purchased by mail through Thursday, June 12. We will also have
tickets at the VRT booth (#4741) in the ALA exhibits hall.

The registration form, and additional information, is available from the VRT


Our deepest THANKS to the National Film Board of Canada and John Sirabella
for hosting this exciting event!
