2009 ALA Midwinter schedule (draft!).

with 2 comments

On Thursday I get to go to Denver! I’m very excited because it’s my first trip to Colorado and I am looking forward to meeting my fellow Emerging Leaders. If you want to get together, let me know. I am including my preliminary schedule below. Because it’s my first Midwinter meeting, I probably won’t get to go to all of these (I probably planned WAY too much). But I want to! I will probably be lurking about trying to meet some of the “big library people” whose blogs I read. 🙂

  2. I think on Tuesday you should go up to Boulder and visit Kitchen (thekitchencafe.com), which was just voted the Greenest Restaurant in the West!

    But that’s just me trying to live vicariously through you… 🙂

    Have a great time. Amy
