The National Program Committee (NPC) is counting on the competitiveness of the Chapters, Sections and Special Interest Groups affiliated with MLA and all libraries (which do NOT have to be institutional members) to donate items to the Party with a Purpose Silent Auction. We know that everyone loves to have bragging rights. The group in each category that has the highest bid (combined multiple small items or one large item) will win those bragging rights. Please note: a donation can be made by an individual for a group but can only count for one!!!

The winners of each category will be announced around 9 pm at the Party with a Purpose and will also be featured in a MLA Focus and MLA News article following the Annual Meeting. Bring your competitive spirit and help make the Party with a Purpose successful for the MLA Scholarship fund, MLA Section Project of the Year Award, and the Chicago adult literacy organization, Literacy Works.
