I sit here tonight checking my to do list and my luggage check list.  I leave tomorrow for Fort Lauderdale for the 2008 School Library Journal Leadership Summit.  You know I asked some of my state folks some time back when I first saw the posting of the summit’s dates who would go and represent […]
