leave a comment »


UNCG LIS student and ACE Scholar Alesha Lackey was the winner of the NCLA membership gift basket at the recent conference in Greenville.

Per Alesha, “There were some nice items in the basket, everything except for a book about NC lighthouses, had the NCLA logo on it. Those items included:

  • a t-shirt
  • a pink travel coffee mug
  • a regular coffee mug
  • a flashlight keychain
  • a set of golf balls
  • a multicolored rubber bracelet (you know the “cause” bracelets) with the word “read” in about 7-10 languages
  • a very nice canvas/leather “padfolio”
