Top 5 Things I Saw at #ALAMW15
5. Watching hundreds of librarians freaking out over book awards: What a sight to be seen! If you get the chance, go to the ALA Youth Media Awards.
4. Chicago is fun: amazing architecture, friendly people, and beautiful art.
3. But when it snows… it snows!! We had over a foot of cold blowing snow!
2. Meeting up with librarians from all over the country is one of the best parts of ALA! Sabrina Carnesi, Pam Renfrow, Marlene Woo-Lun, Dorcas Hand, Hilda Weisburg, and so many others!
The librarians from Region 1 are smart, funny, and filled with great ideas! It was great to spend time with Susan Ballard, Jessica Gilcreast, Amy Short, Kathy Lowe, Judi Paradis, and Anita Cellucci.
1. School Librarians Transform Learning! At the AASL Affiliates Assembly planning session, we were given buttons that said “Ask Me How School Librarians Transform Learning” and business cards with several elevator speech ideas. We will be handing out copies of the business cards at the NHSLMA Conference in May!
