I really enjoyed the ALA Midwinter Meeting in Denver last weekend! Most of my time was spent in New Members Round Table (NMRT) meetings, but I enjoyed seeing a bit of Denver too! I stayed in a hotel right across from the Colorado Convention Center, which was so convenient. One of the most intriguing things about this convention center is that there’s a big bear statue outside (looking in!) It’s quite the attraction, and lots of people took photos of it, both inside and outside the convention center, while I was there. It snowed one day, which is when I took the photo of me (to the left) with the Big Blue Bear in the background.
In addition to NMRT meetings, I attended the Planning and Budget Assembly meeting, which gives a big picture of the ALA (American Library Association) budget. In addition, I organized a TweetUp–but no one stopped by. Planning was quick and publicity was small, so I wasn’t sure anyone would show up. I’ll think about trying a TweetUp at another ALA conference when I have time for more planning and publicity.
