I appreciate having the ability to go to MLA in St. Cloud. I was fortunate to present a program (Geek Squad by Default) that was well attended, as well as being able to pick up new ideas to bring back to my library. Working in a small rural library, it’s good to get ideas from big libraries and try to reverse engineer them cheaper to use back at my home libraries.
It was also a blessing to be able to reconnect with past colleagues that I haven’t seen in years, as well as making new connections in the state.
