Last week I attended the American Library Association Midwinter Meeting 2010 in Boston, Massachusetts.
I got to ride the T and visit the Boston Public Library.
I got to make some new friends on my Emerging Leaders project team.
I got to meet, greet, hear from, and talk with many of the movers and shakers of the library world. Camila Alire, Roberta Stevens, Linda Braun, Sarah Debraski, Sarah Johns, and Joyce Valenza.
I got to attend the AASL (American Association of School Librarians) Affiliate Assembly and the YALSA (the Young Adult Library Services Association) Executive Board Meeting.
I got to learn a lot about librarianship and leadership.
And I got inspired to be a better advocate -- a front-line advocate -- for libraries -- especially school libraries -- with every patron, every day!
I would like to thank YALSA for their generous scholarship.
I'll see you all in D.C. this summer for our annual conference!
