Book Drive

The Community Service Committee has selected the Pinewoods Library and Learning Center, a branch of the Athens Regional Public Library System, as the beneficiary of this years Annual Meeting Book Drive.

The SEAALL 2009 Wish List for the Pinewoods Library is now  up at

Pinewoods Library is a specialized branch that provides adult education including English as a Second Language classes, family literacy activities and afterschool tutoring. The branch, which is located in a doublewide trailer in the Pinewoods North Mobile Home Park on U.S. Highway 29 North, was first intended to serve the 2,000 residents of the mobile home park where it is located. The library has since grown to serve as the resource and information center for the nearly 18,000 Hispanic immigrants who live in the county. Pinewoods Library is often the first stop for many new immigrants where they learn English and computer skills, along with discovering library services. 

The Pinewoods Library was recently selected as one of three finalists for Library Journal's 2009 Best Small Library in America!

Centerpiece Food Drive

Instead of decorating with eco-unfriendly cut flower centerpieces, the Local Arrangements Committee and the SEAALL Community Service Committee are opting to create centerpieces using baskets filled with donated food items. We encourage all SEAALL members to donate to our Centerpiece Food Drive.

Who benefits:

  • The donated food items and cash will go to the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, which distributes food to the ill, needy and minor children in 14 northeastern Georgia counties.

How to donate:

  • bring a packaged food item to the meeting and turn it in at the Registration Desk - if you prefer to stop by a grocery store on your way to the conference, see the Google Map of local supermarkets.
  • purchase a packaged food item at the Registration Desk for inclusion in the baskets

Blockbuster Basket Raffle

Look for our rockin' Blockbuster Basket Raffle at the meeting!
