ALA Annual 2017

Exploring Chicago #alaac17

After my best attempts to make it to winding down sessions and an emptying exhibit hall– my friends and I decided to use our evening to see some Chicago sights!

We made our way to the Up Comedy Club to see a Second City improv show! I love improv and the idea of seeing a show at the place where Tina Fey got her start was super exciting!

Then we made our way to Pequods for some deep dish pizza!

And this evening out reminded me why ALA is so invaluable to me–it’s a chance to reconnect with my grad school friends in a way that life wouldn’t allow me to do! As much as I love them, my vacation time is usually spent on family or leisure time– and since we all live across the nation from each other- this is our time to catch up!

As we sat across from each other in the booth and eating yummy and cheesy pizza, we shared stories of how life is at our libraries… and could each breathe out a sigh of relief at just having a moment together and knowing that we understood each other!
