ALA Midwinter 2016

Wanted: Live Bloggers at #alamw16

alamw16After the holidays, in just over 5 weeks, thousands of librarians will be heading to Boston for ALA’s Midwinter Conference.


The ALA Midwinter Meeting, to be held January 8th through the 12th, brings together more than 10,000 leaders in the library and information industry for some 2,000 meetings and events.  The exhibit hall features the latest in books, videos, computers and other materials.  And, of course, a highlight of the Midwinter Conference is the announcement of the Youth Media Awards, including the Newbery and Caldecott Awards.

Are you heading to Boston for these meetings? If so, the ALSC Blog would love to have you volunteer to help those who are #leftbehind by writing short pieces telling about the people you are meeting and the meetings you are attending as well as offering information about what you are experiencing and learning. It’s easy and fun, and is a powerful tool for sharing information with other librarians. Take a look through our live blogging archives to read some of the information which has been shared from past conferences.

Sound interesting? Sound fun? Sound like something you’d like to do?  Contact Mary Voors at with your questions or to volunteer to liveblog from Midwinter.
