Loida @ ALA 2012 Annual Conference

It is that time of the year when thousands of librarians gather for the American Library Association Annual Conference. This year we go to Anaheim, California, to enjoy exciting programs and meetings.

I am looking forward to see all my fabulous colleagues! I am speaking at a few events, Chairing a committee; also serving as ALA Councilor, and Immediate Past Chair of the Intellectual Freedom Round Table. 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! Reach me via email, text or the usual social media.
