My primary professional organization, the Medical Library Association, holds an annual meeting in May in a different city each year. This year it starts this Saturday in Seattle. Two years ago, two members from the Hospital Libraries Section started a project called WRAP - Warm Up and Read Project to collect knitted, crocheted or quilted blankets made by MLA members for a hospital in the meeting community. Each blanket donation also includes a book.
While I was on retreats for the past two weekends, I started and completed a donation for the WRAP project.
