Code4Lib 2017 Social Activities

The Social Activities Group is working on several events and social opportunities for after conference hours. We will be adding more events as they come along. Watch this page!

Also, if you find a cool event to go to, and want to share the wealth with others, feel free to add the event to the page. :)

Planned Events

NB! This year's Newcomer Dinner options are not close to the convention center and hotel. You will most likely be relying on public transportation, taxis, or ride-sharing services to get to your destination. Please plan accordingly.

Play games? Have some homemade (or “homemade”) treats to share? Want to find folks to play music with? We organized a large open room near the conference center with plenty of space for attendees to gather and socialize, play games and share goodies. We will provide tables and chairs for Board Game Night and some space for jam sessions. You are also welcome to bring stuff to share, from craft sodas and beers to baked goods to local treats - we’ll have a few tables set up for that as well.
