I’ll be speaking at ALA
I will be speaking at ALA this summer. I have the privilege of participating in a day-long preconference, Building Communities through Innovative Applications of Technology, to take place at the Swissotel on Friday, July 10. The link to the event on ALA’s website does not list my name, so I might wear a bald wig to make people think I’m Tony Tallent. 😉 I will be presenting with the following esteemed librarians:
John Blyberg, Assistant Director, Innovation & User Experience, Darien (Conn.) Library
Sandy Farmer, Manager, Central Youth Services, Houston (Tex.) Public Library
Glenn Peterson, Founder, EngagedPatrons.org
Aaron Schmidt, digital initiatives librarian , District of Columbia Public Library
We’ll be talking about innovative uses of technology to build communities in libraries. The schedule includes presentations by the speakers as well as breakout sessions for brainstorming. This should be a fun day and I’m looking forward to it!
