Happy (late) Fall from the Bulletin – we have a great issue looking back at some of the great events CALL has held over the last couple months, including the first in-person Business Meeting since 2020!
We hope you enjoy the issue and continue to provide the great service and contributions that make CALL such a wonderful and vibrant organization! And as always, it isn’t too early to start thinking about contributions to the next issue of the CALL Bulletin.
Have a wonderful, healthy, and safe holiday season… and Happy New Year!

Welcome to (late) spring: warm weather (kind of), baseball (bad on both sides) and the Spring Bulletin (always great)!
In this issue we congratulate the incoming Board members, enjoy Jamie Sommer’s last message as President, and catch up on all of the great things the MLDC is doing.
As always reach out to the editors with any thoughts or concerns, and please enjoy the Spring 2022 issue of the Bulletin!
Happy February to everyone! Though with how cold it is outside, “Happy February” may seem like an oxy-moron. Luckily the Bulletin is here to warm your spirits. See and celebrate how active CALL has been during these wintery months!
President Jamie Sommer kicks off the 75th Anniversary of CALL as an organization, describing our history and previewing the yearlong celebration. Heidi Kuehl explains why these volatile times call for Adaptive Leadership. We say hello to new CALL member Julie Tedjeske Crane who introduces herself to CALL, and take a look at the nominees for the upcoming Executive Board elections. Finally, congratulate fellow CALL members who volunteered at the Greater Chicago Food Depository.
We hope you enjoy hearing from your colleagues as much as we did, and use this time to celebrate all that CALL has done and will continue to do. But above all: STAY WARM! Take care.
Welcome to the Fall 2021 CALL Bulletin. As we enter what is often the busiest time of the year, we hope you have time to sit down this season and read the wonderful articles we have rounded up.
First, as always, the President’s message from current president, Jamie Sommer. Then follow the Community Service Committee and their Community Beach Cleanup organized to fight plastic pollution. Learn all about CALL Grant recipient Brittany Adams’ experience at Rare Books School (congratulate her, too.) Finally, to round it all out, we have our Board Meeting Minutes. Enjoy!
Greetings CALL Members!
We hope you’re staying cool over the last month of hot and humid temperatures. One thing that is always cool: the summer Bulletin, chalk full of reports from your fellow members on the great committee work and programs that have been going on. Continue reading From the Editors
