Today was day 1 of ALA. Well, technically it was day 2, but day one for me so that’s the chronology I’m using. My first event was YALSA 101, a “get to know the Young Adult Library Services Association” hour-long event which went much like speed dating. But instead of getting a new partner every few minutes, we moved to a new table to learn something new about YALSA. I learned about the blog/website presence, YA Lit Symposium in Albuquerque in Nov., and webinars. Then I made a few new friends at the YALSA Happy Hour, two from Howard County (MD) and one from OHIO!!
All in all, a great start to the event.
