This was the first time for me that a library conference was held in the city where I work. As a public librarian it was a great experience to hear the perspective from school librarians and network with a lot of great colleagues. Though the conference was a blend of academic and public librarians as well.
YALSA’s Happy Hour led to networking with local school librarians and the pre-conference session on Libraries that Game was excellent. Brian Mayer and Christopher Harris’ book on board games aligned with the curriculum, Libraries Got Game couldn’t have had better timing.
Hopefully YALSA blog readers have had a chance to visit SLJ blogs and AASL’s blog to grab excerpts from the conference. If you attended AASL, feel free to leave a comment or post about your experience.
