This years ALA Annual Conference was in Chicago, IL. The good news: I got to stay with my sister. The bad news: I didn’t get to see that much of her because I was so busy!
I’m only getting to this a week late, but at least I’m getting it done this time, right? Right?!? (Lord I’m behind…and I swear the to-do list has a life of it’s own now.)

There were many more things I would have liked to have attended, but unfortunately location and time were determining factors. As were conflicts. Seems all the sessions I was really interested in occurred in the same time slots. Lots of tough decisions. And my need to eat lunch played a role as well (feed me regularly or suffer the consequences!). Everything I attended was great, I just wish I could have cloned myself to attend some of the other sessions happening at the same time too!
Hopefully over the next few days (or maybe this weekend) I’ll pull together summaries of the sessions from my notes and post them.
