ALA 2012: Transforming Our Libraries, Ourselves

June 28th, 2012 by libuser

The American Library Association held its annual conference and exhibition at the Anaheim Convention CenterĀ over the past weekend. ALA reported a total of 14,640 attendees with 5,381 exhibitors showcasing their products and services. Library professionals, administrators, staff, and students gathered from all over the world to attend programs and poster sessions, visit the booths, meet new library folks and visit with old acquaintances.

The Wardman Library director, librarians, and instructional media designer joined in the fun as well. There were tons of freebies, interactive demos, games, prizes, and raffles to partake in. Author signings and notable speakers always draw big crowds with names like George R.R. Martin, JR Martinez, Sapphire, Jodi Picoult, Dan Rather, John Irving, and Henry Winkler, pictured here with our very own Lauren Poelvoorde.
