Plan to jump-start some fabulous holiday shopping at the upcoming 23rd annual Dartmouth College Library Staff Association (DCLSA) craft fair this Friday, Nov. 21 from 10:00 am-4:00 pm in Alumni Hall at the Hopkins Center. Over forty talented vendors from the College and around New England will be selling fine hand-crafted goods, ranging from jewelry to fiber arts to handmade wooden items to pottery, clothing, and more. This event links us with our community and supports many DCLSA programs. Greg Potter, Research and Information Desk Coordinator at Baker-Berry Library, has been chairperson of the crafts fair committee for two years. This year, he’s focused on cost reduction strategies and increasing amounts donated to funding the association’s programs.
Barb Krieger, Archives Supervisor at Rauner Library, has been a devoted supporter of the fair for many years and serves on the committee as well as being a valued jewelry vendor. Vendors pay a minimum of $25 to participate when they sign up and give 15% of sales back to the library association. “Many increase that amount to give to our organization,” Greg said.
Michelle Lee, Resource Sharing Supervisor, has supported the event. She’s purchased earrings, cute toy mice and baked goods. She has contributed baked goods to the fair as well.
We hope to see you at the craft fair this Friday!
