American Library Association Conference

Leave a comment

I was unable to post for a couple of weeks as I just attended the Midwinter conference of ALA.  I am on a committee that helps coordinate awards for best library building projects in conjunction with the American Institute of Architects.  I am also on a committee that awards 6 significant scholarships for students pursuing their Master’s in LIbrary Science with the intent of becoming a children’s librarian in a public library.

I had loads of fun in the vast Exhibit Halls, looking at furniture, lighting, products, etc. that would be wonderful in our new building as well as the restored current library.  It is simply amazing to see all the wonderful library items that are available.

Speaking of technology, we will begin offering audiobooks that you can download from our catalog to your mp3 player.  Unfortunately, no downloadable book vendors are compatible with Apple’s ipods.  We plan to have mp3 players available at minimal cost for those who wish to purchase them and use our collection.
