I am finishing up the School Librarianship cohort with Prince William County. As part of the program we asked to attend the VAASL (Virginia Association of School Librarians) conference in Williamsburg, VA. I recently moved to Connecticut, but I traveled back to VA to attend the conference. It was well worth it! I went to 10 sessions and every single one was amazing! I am currently a high school librarian and I learned so much at this conference. I have so many new ideas I can’t wait to bring back to my school! My favorite session, by far, was Maggie Stiefvater’s presentation on Mythology in YA literature. My book club is currently reading The Scorpio Races. I can’t wait to show them that I met her and got a picture with her! The kids are going to be so excited! Her stories and explanation of what inspires her to write was interesting and I can’t wait to share that with the group, too. Another session that was great was one on how to promote your library program. I came away with great ideas that don’t really cost all that much. This conference was a great way to network and learn about all the wonderful things that other librarians are doing! This conference was extremely educational and I can’t wait to return next year.
