#alaac15 Day 2

Good Morning from San Francisco!

What an energizing first day at ALA Annual Conference yesterday!

Certainly made head way for my three goals.

1. Added Three Massachusetts librarians and Leslie Preddy to my library team.  Lots of great conversations about what we do and idea exchange.  Leslie is a MakerSpace guru!
2. Brief discussions with Leslie about makerspaces. She'll be a great person to follow.  I grabbed lots of graphic novel resources to help purchasing for next year!
3. Got great giveaways from tons of vendors! Will be looking into RefMe and a music research resource! Sent a huge box of goodies home.  Can't wait to give it to all of my Londonderry librarians.

Day 2:

AASL Affiliate Assembly.  Lots to learn there.  I can't wait to experience librarianship at the national level.

Experience San Francisco in the afternoon. #lovewins

My #alaac15 Goals

I'm here in San Francisco at ALA Annual Conference with Pam Halrand and Jessie Gilcreast.

We are up early & ready to soak up as much as we can.

Here are my three goals for #alaac15:

1. New library rockstars to add to #teamlibrarynh & my team
2. What's the buzz with MakerSpaces nation wide? Graphic novels?
3. Find some great marketing & library branding swag & ideas!

Here goes nothing! Can't wait to report back tonight!
