Are you going to the ALA conference? Me too!
If you are interested in having a small gathering of Minnesota people, all out and enjoying ourselves at the lovely conference, you can email me or fill out the form below. We can set up a time and place to get together for coffee or something in McCormick Center, in between all the myriad of activities!
If you are not attending, no worries on being left out of the fun! You can follow the hashtag #ALALeftBehind on social media, and get information from attendees and from ALA. Many of the programs will be available in some format to you after the conference is over, so stay tuned to it!
Looking forward to seeing you in Chicago!
Ah, summer! We all live for the relaxing, slower pace of the hot weather. (Okay, fewer mosquitoes would be good; but that’s a small quibble!)
And eventually everyone gets tired of hanging out, and wishes for some good library discussion. We are here to help with that!
We really enjoyed having our social events in the winter and spring; and are looking forward to hearing from you guys about your summer work, any plans you are making for upcoming programs, and any other interesting library things you want to share! (And it’s ALL interesting when it comes to library stuff!!)
So let’s set up some times and places we can meet up to talk. Vote below for some general days and times that will work out for you. We anticipate setting up multiple events, at different times and places, so everyone who wants to do so can come visit, chat, and have some unstructured time to hang out with your library colleagues from across the system! (It’s possible that I’m just biased; but I think we have the most interesting discussions and people! Come check it out for yourself!)
We are putting together plans for a September “Welcome To Fall” event; so feel free to share any ideas you might have for that. More details will be available as we get closer to September.
Now go enjoy yourself, listen to some back episodes of our “Linking Our Libraries” podcast, and follow along with our Summer Fun Library Tour posts each day to get a quick, fun library story!
