Last week, the American Library Associate conference was in DC. This is like San Diego Comic-Con for librarians, it’s huge! Our library arranged to let all the paraprofessionals go to the exhibits (free for us) and gave us a half-day of leave to do it in. Those of us planning to go to library school jumped at it.
It was a pretty fun experience, not the first library conference I’ve been to, but the biggest. Here’s what got me most excited on the exhibit hall floor:
Even better, they were giving out copies of R.A. Salvatore’s book The Orc King. So I got that too.
please don’t jump me, librarians, I didn’t get to go to those fancy sessions you do…paraprofs at my workplace didn’t get tickets.
