ALA Annual 2014

And Now for Something Completely Different…

I’m back home now and reflecting on my #alaac14 conference experience. It was amazing – full of inspiring ideas, friends (old and new), and thrilling moments (I can’t be the only one who got a little teary at the Newbery-Caldecott Banquet).

Las Vegas was definitely a unique, if difficult city to navigate. But I won’t soon forget the over the top glitz and glitter. In fact, even the restrooms were luxurious! I thought it would be a fun adventure to take pictures of these sumptuously lavish (but oh-so-necessary) rooms as I traversed the city. Here are a few of my favorites:

    Love this! I have to admit that I was thrilled with all the marble in the bathrooms at the Wynn. So classy!

    Thanks! There’s something surreal about Vegas and it definitely extends to the restrooms!
