Pssst: Insider Info on Blogger Bash @ ALA Annual

Breaking News: Library Garden has "the scoop" from a reliable source!

ALA President-Elect Leslie Burger will host a gathering for bloggers in her suite at the Hilton on Saturday June 24th after the Scholarship Bash (starting around 10:30 pm and going until midnight). It will be an informal event, great for networking, unwinding and catching up with bibliobloggers both old and new. So why not plan to take in Mary Chapin Carpenter at the official Bash and then head over to the Hilton for the after-bash blogger bash.

More details to be forthcoming, just be sure to mark your calendars. Please rsvp by leaving a comment here on Library Garden if you plan on attending so everyone can see who will be there -- and to make sure you get final details (aka precise location) when they are available drop me an email: jhermann at princetonlibrary dot org. Spread the word!

Oh, and if you are wondering how Library Garden got this breaking news... check my blogger profile and you might notice that I have "connections" to LB... and she is my reliable source. I just finished meeting with her and she has asked me to promote and coordinate.

I see it. Princeton Public Library. I see you also have a link to Central New York and the Finger Lakes region. Geneva is a beautiful town. I grew up in Ithaca, also in the Finger Lakes!

Hey Bill: Our connectivity is even greater than the Finger Lakes -- I am also a moderator on WJ! Small World!

Oh, and at the suggestion of Pete Bromberg I added my email address to the orginal post to make the rsvp process a little more official. So, now the connection between LB (as she is known at MPOW) and myself is obivous up front.

Looks like we have a real party in the makings now! I think this event could be the highlight of ALA for me. Glad to see so many will be coming, both with bells and without!

For those who are coming in a day early, join us at the New Orleans Public Library for a workshop on library as place.
