ALA – left behind but not without hope

I’m not headed to the annual ALA conference in Anaheim like many info-pros are right now. Instead, I’ll be working my typical hours and continuing with the summer reading program events. I’m not disappointed, though. I’m hoping this fall I will be able to attend a conference or two. I applied for a scholarship for the Association for Rural and Small Libraries (ARSL) annual conference in Raleigh, NC at the end of September and I’m hoping to get enough funds to travel up to the Minnesota Library Association (MLA) conference in October.

I’m looking forward to watching tweets and blog posts about the discussions at ALA. I know that although I’m left behind this year, good things will happen there because good people are attending and working to make librarianship better around the country. And, this is my promise to you, at some point in my life I will be able to physically attend these conferences to play a more active role in this process. I just can’t do it right now – because I’m really BROKE! 🙂
