ALA Midwinter 2015

Joint ALSC and YALSA Member Reception at #alamw15

After my last meeting of the day, I went straight to my hotel, removed my snow-covered boots and sat down on my bed.  Part of me wanted to stay in my cozy spot, but I’d told a colleague I’d meet her at the ALSC and YALSA Joint Member Reception.  So I figured I’d better put my boots back on.

And I’m very glad I did!  In addition to catching up with my colleague, I got to see some other familiar faces and meet a few new brilliant librarians.  I loved getting to hear about everyone’s conference highlights and favorite Youth Media Award recipients.  Whenever I am in the presence of a large group Children’s and Teen Librarians, I am astounded by their vast knowledge, passion for their work and openness to new ideas.  What a perfect a way to end my conference.
