In fulfillment of CONtraflow's mission to promote all types of Science Fiction and Fantasy literature, the CONtraflow Board of Directors are thrilled to announce that New Orleans Public Library is our convention charity. We hope to not only support the goals of New Orleans Public Library in serving the reading interests of the greater New Orleans area but also in promoting literacy to build a better New Orleans.
To this end, our activities will include:
- Science Fiction / Fantasy programming at the branches of the New Orleans Public Library.
- Promoting the New Orleans Public Library at CONtraflow promotional events and at the convention itself.
- Holding a charity auction at the convention, the proceeds of which will go the New Orleans Public Library.
- Sponsoring a used book drive wherein the materials collected will be turned over to the Friends of the New Orleans Public Library to use for fund-raising to support library services and programs.
Check back to learn more about how CONtraflow will support the New Orleans Public Library, or email Charity Liaison (and librarian!) Jessica Styons at firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information.
