Further Information for the 2014 ACL Institute "Your Library is the Common Core: CCSS, STEM/STEAM, and How Libraries Fit in With the New Push Toward Non-fiction"
The closest accessible BART station is Civic Center. The library is located next to the Asian Art Museum, and across Civic Center Plaza (open square block with trees down the middle) from City Hall.
Accessible parking is available at Civic Center Plaza Garage (under Civic Center Plaza), 355 McAllister (between Larkin & Polk). Additional parking available at the Performing Arts Garage, 360 Grove Street (between Franklin & Gough).
OTHER FOOD MATTERS:
BOOK SALES: Luan Stauss of Laurel Book Store in Oakland will bring a selection of topical children's books, including copies of Marc Aronson & Marianne Mayor’s The Griffin and the Dinosaur: How Adrienne Mayor Discovered a Fascinating Link Between Myth and Science. Because this book will be offered to us ahead of its publishing date (April 8th), sales can only be made for this title IN CASH. A book signing will be conducted at the end of the day.
If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact me at [email protected] Thanks for registering, and we’ll see you bright and early on Friday, March 14th!
