MULSA will not be sponsoring a Halloween Party this year due to cost, lack of interest, and the need to focus on upcoming Thanksgiving Party in just a few weeks. We would like to encourage library departments and units to celebrate Halloween their style this year.
The MU Libraries Staff Association was created to support “the human side” of life in all MU Libraries. MULSA strives to promote staff morale as well as social relationships among staff members by welcoming new staff and organizing social events for the libraries. MULSA is also committed to help maintain areas for staff members to take breaks and have meals in the specialized libraries, as well as in Ellis Library.
In order for MULSA to save enough money for the big events it funds throughout the year, efforts should be made to replace worn out or broken items used in the break areas through donations if possible. When the best option is to buy items new, preapproval from the MULSA executive board should be obtained before making the purchase in order to ensure full reimbursement for the cost.
