ALA in DC

Last weekend, my colleague Judy and I traveled to Washington DC to attend the American Library Association's annual conference. What I remember most from DC was the 256875 pounds of books we lugged around, the HEAT and HUMIDITY, and the great setting - visiting monuments, memorials and fountains.  We had a great time! Yay ALA!

What we saw and did...

The National Cathedral was definitely a highlight for us both...so beautiful inside and out...

Laughed like idiots at the Book Cart Drill Team World Championships...

We tackled the Exhibits Hall day after day, loading up on books and freebies and talking to vendors...
