Donate to the Silent Auction

Donate to the Annual ULA Silent Auction!

Have you heard? This year, the ULA Silent Auction and Networking Social has been shifted earlier to 4pm on Thursday, May 17th. We’ve changed things up to make this the closing session of the day with a short keynote and improved networking opportunities.

Did you know? All proceeds from the Silent Auction go directly into the ULA Scholarship Fund. These scholarships enable recipients to attend professional development opportunities like the ULA conference, the Association of Rural and Small Libraries Conference, and more!

The Silent Auction Committee is looking for donations of new items ready to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Please consider contributing an individual donation or combining with colleagues to make a donation. This is one way that you can support the ULA organization and our librarians. In the past, individual donations have ranged from signed books, gift cards, local merchandise, artwork and more.

The Utah Library Association greatly appreciates your donation. If you plan to donate something, see the instructions below. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Emily Darowski (

Our theme for this year’s conference is “Level Up.” It will be held May 16-18, 2018 at the Utah Valley Convention Center in Provo, Utah.

Here are a few highlights of our program:

  • Pre-conferences on topics such as children’s programming, workplace communication, gamification in education, and fair use policies.
  • 5th Annual Silent Auction and Networking Social! Proceeds from the auction fund conference registration scholarships for ULA members. The social will be 4-5pm on Thursday and will include short messages from the ULA president and a guest speaker as well as new ways to network with ULA roundtable and committee groups.  
    • Direct scholarship donations are accepted on the ULA website as well as the RegOnline website as you register.
  • Keynotes from Kris Boesch on experiencing more joy in your workplace and Miguel Figueroa on the trends and values for the library of the future.
  • Conference Swag! The Conference Planning Committee is ordering conference t-shirts highlighting this year’s awesome “Level Up” logo. T-shirt orders need to be made by April 1 so we can get our order in and ready before the conference. The cost of the T-shirt will be $20 or $24 (depending on size). Orders can be placed in RegOnline when you are registering for the conference or on the ULA Conference website: Any revenue from these t-shirts will be added to the ULA scholarship fund.
