This was my first time attending the conference and I ran into an expected issue: too many interesting and relevant sessions and too little time to attend them all.

NeverEndingSearch

A couple of weeks back I presented at a conference about the value of out-of -the-box thinking. On a whim I included a slide that read: “Keep School Libraries Weird.” ” I’ve been doing a little thinking about why, like Austin , we might want to keep school libraries a little weird.
