What a day! It may have rained all day– I didn’t step outside until 5 pm- and that was just for a donut run! (Keep track readers- I grabbed three today), but things were full steam ahead at the conference!
I spent the day running through the convention center and getting my usual amount of lost, while still attending some cool presentations about stress management, ALSC leadership, and of course grabbing a million books.
What stuck out to me today was all the community of ALA! Everywhere you looked were people hugging and screaming and being so happy to see each other again. I loved seeing that! Through my conference years, I have met lots of conference friends– and when you don’t bring coworkers or grad school friends with you– it’s nice to know that there is community everywhere. It makes the conference seem a bit less lonely and overwhelming! If you see me at the conference, stop and say hi!
