Smell and Tell: Serge Lutens: Collaboration in Luxury Fragrance Design

Wednesday April 8, 2015: 7:00 pm to 8:45 pm -- Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room

This event is intended for adults and teens (grade 6 and up)

Growth in the luxury niche category in perfumery has revived the role of the in-house perfumer. House perfumers are sensorial interpreters. They are given dreams and wishes and must distill what is contained in heart of the dreamer—and bottle it so the fantasy can be revisited again and again. The blueprint for the perfect relationship between icon and maker is as mysterious as a fragrant sillage that dresses the air. Serge Lutens relationship with perfumer Christopher Sheldrake spans 22 years. In that time these two collaborators have created over 50 scents, each with its own distinctive character. We will explore some of Serge Lutens most beloved scents and how the dreams behind each of them became manifest. Lecture by Michelle Krell Kydd, trained nose in flavors and fragrance, and editor of Glass Petal Smoke.

Library Camp: An Unconference

Friday May 8, 2015: 9:30 am to 4:30 pm -- Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room and Downtown Library: aadlfreespace and Downtown Library: Conference Room A and Downtown Library: Training Center

This event is intended for information professionals and graduate students with an interest in libraries

Library Camp doesn't mean burned marshmallows, mosquito bites, or popsicle stick-based art projects. Library Camp is an informal unconference gathering to share ideas, technologies, and discussions. This event is free to attend and will be held at the Downtown Library. Click here to register.

The goal is to get a bunch of people together, and let them talk about whatever they'd like to talk about, within the rough purview of libraries and library technology. We'll start with a blank schedule and get together to talk about what we'd like to talk about and fill in a few slots on the agenda. We've got time for four sessions and room for at least 4 concurrent sessions, so there could easily be 10-12 different things to talk about during the day.

To help focus the conversation, we're proposing 4 tracks: Nontraditional Collections, Ebooks & Licensing, Special Events, Summer & Gaming. AADL staff will be on hand to talk a bit about these things at AADL, but like any unconference, the event is led by whoever shows up! Here's a rough schedule:

Doors open and Bagel Breakfast: 9:30-10:00am

Welcome: 10:00-11:00am

Session 1: 10:30-11:30am
Session 2: 11:30-12:30am

Lunch on your own: 12:30-2:00pm

Session 3: 2:00-3:00pm
Session 4: 3:00-4:00pm

Wrap up and Farewell: 4:00-4:30pm
