Alberta Library Conference
Many thanks again to the Athabasca County Library Board for sending me to the Alberta Library Conference at the end of April in Jasper. The key note speakers were incredible. We heard Neil Pasricha speak about his books about “AWESOME”. Neil started the blog to help himself out of a dark period of his life. He began blogging about all the incredible things he treasures in life like walking on crunchy leaves, flipping your pillow over to the cold side and the smell of fresh laundry. He was very engaging. Check out his blog at 1000awesomethings.com.
The entire conference was fabulous. I attended sessions on youth programming ideas, upcoming bestsellers for youth and adult, and learning management systems. It was a great opportunity.
