It’s not often that you can walk into a city and immediately feel a bumpin’ welcoming and relaxed jazz vibe. New Orleans is that city. From the moment I arrived at the airport, there was a welcoming jazz band playing music for conference attendees! All the workers were welcoming people to the city and giving advice on surviving the heat! The exhibit hall was getting set up, with pieces of New Orleans flair spicing it up! I took a walk down Bourbon Street and could see a mix of locals, tourists, college partiers and of course librarians. This is NOLA! and NOLA is more than ready for us. Are we ready for it?!
