Keynote speaker Margaret Willison and me (Julie Platt)

Conference was awesome.  In three days, I attended 13 sessions, two keynote speakers, and an awards banquet.  I came home exhausted and excited.  It was great to see and meet all of these super people.  I also met some of the people whose names I see on the listserv.  I like having faces to go with the names.

I got new ideas to use immediately and new visions to add to long term goals.  I want to add a newsletter to our monthly report.  The monthly report goes to administration.  I want to post a monthly newsletter on our library website for students, parents, and teachers.

The conference was great professional development.  It is important to always keep learning and growing.
