I enjoyed all of the sessions I attended and learned something new that I could use at each one. It was great networking with colleagues and friends, especially when your library is a little off the beaten track. The keynote speakers were humorous and positive. (I've been to teacher's conferences where all you learn is how ineffective you are and I would come home feeling beaten down instead of lifted up!)
Best of all was having Kristen, one of our library's trustees, attend with me. It was great comparing notes from different sessions and having someone to go with me to the Terry Redlin Art Center (awesome place!) for the evening reception. She was a wonderful roommate for many reasons, but most of all because she liked to read before bed!
Looking forward to next year in Chamberlain!
