I arrived sometime around 11:00 AM with a ton of baggage! You see, not only did I have to set up in the “Committee Exploratorium” for Regional Network, I also had to set up a poster session table to showcase weeded book art projects. I was disheartened to learn I’d left at home the center […]

Our annual library conference held in Columbia, SC was one of the most memorable in years.  Ten or so years ago there was no doubt that our conference drew upwards of 1200 attendees. In recent years though, with the downward turn of the economy and schools tightening their wallets, fewer of our librarians have come. […]
