Recently I was asked if I would consider making the trip to Washington, DC for National Library Legislative Day 2011. What a GREAT opportunity to network with library leaders nationwide, and have a (hopefully) captive audience in our congress for talking about issues that are greatly impacting school libraries.

This week will prove quite challenging for me.  Wednesday through Friday we have our annual South Carolina Association of School Librarians Conference in Greenville, SC.  There is much buzz about this conference, but I’m most excited that Doug Johnson is coming for a keynote and a few sessions!
