ALA 2016 Annual Conference & Exhibition #ALAAC16

Print

Every time I go to ALA I feel like a kid in a candy store. Where else in the world can you meet your favorite librarians, educators, editors, and publishers; bump into Dan Santat in the hallway; and hear your child scream with delight, “Mo Willems is HERE! HE’S HERE!!!

Below are a few photographic highlights from this year’s INCREDIBLE conference.

A well-prepared librarian! 

As my favorite spider might say, ALA is some conference. I can hardly wait for next year. Thank you, ALA!

    • Pat, It was a great trip. The “bigger son” is actually my husband. I’m just so used to calling them my boys. In any event, he is now gushing about his youthful appearance and insisting that the key to staying young is not exercising. I hope he can fit his youthful, big head through our front door. 🙂

  1. From everything I’ve seen posted about the ALA, it looks like an incredible time was to be had by all! Sorry you didn’t get to meet my friend Sylvia, though…I told her she’d love you and you two have your law background in common, too. 🙂
