ALA Annual 2010

Discover D.C. – The Great Blogdown to the 2010 ALA Annual Conference – #7

Less than 3 weeks to go, Conference fans! Attendees to the Annual Conference this year will have the good fortune of visiting Washington during the Smithsonian‘s annual Folklife Festival on the National Mall (June 24-28 & July 1-5).  Each year, the Smithsonian Folklife Festival spotlights some of the many cultures that make our country and our world so special.  This year’s festival celebrates the cultures of  Asian Pacific Americans and Mexico.  There will also be a tribute to Haiti as well as a special area dedicated to the Smithsonian itself – Smithsonian Inside Out, which serves as a kick-off to the Institution’s bold new vision for the future.  Enjoy each culture’s arts, crafts, music, food, and more!
