Loida’s Schedule for the American Library Association Annual Conference

It is that fabulous time of the year when thousands of librarians gather for the American Library Association Annual Conference. This year we go to New Orleans to enjoy exciting programs, meetings, hot weather and all-things Cajun!

I am looking forward to see all my fabulous colleagues! I am speaking at a few events, Chairing two committees; also serving as ALA Councilor, and Immediate Past President of REFORMA. I, like many others, will be busy, but below are some highlights of my schedule…and a few other events. I am sure I will add more events and meetings.  (Look at the conference program for more great events; I am just featuring a number of them.) Let’s talk!
