I think I have magical librarian powers. Yesterday, I was feeling ambitious and cleared a space for the new CD shelves that I hoped to get in 2015. Lo and behold, they unexpectedly arrived this morning! I need to figure out how to control these magical powers to get a bigger library building.
1. I am there for a library conference
2. I do not drink or gamble
3. Despite 2, I am lots of fun and hope to run into Britney Spears
4. Las Vegas will be 108 this weekend, conference centers usually hover around 50.
5. I may have to do some running to catch up to Lois Lowry (and…
I have one awesomely sequined item but I think it’s all ALAed out from the last dance party. I’m not sure what all this “ladies must wear heels” dress code business is all about for the nightclubs. I always pack heels and usually wear them….but if they tell me I HAVE to wear them I wanna be rebellious and do flats.
Also running to LL. Not.in.HEELS.
That time of year, fellow tumblarians.
Come see me!
Hey ALA goers! JSTOR is proud to be a part of the SECOND ANNUAL TUMBLARIAN ALA MEETUP and we hope to see you there!
Also! Frankie’s is a 15 minute walk from the EveryLibrary party at the Arts Factory.
15 minute walk! Not in the snow! Flashbacks to Midwinter and frozen toes. Eeeek!
Almost 3 years ago I gave up checking bag and started traveling with only a carry on. I was tired of paying the extra baggage fees, waiting for my bag at the carousel, and it felt like a challenge. After a few trips I got used to it and I never looked back! Here’s how I do it.
Plus tips for first time and long time conference attendees.
Repeat: Portable battery/USB charger! Best conference investment. My phone always dies after lunch. This is the major must-have!
Great idea on the power strip. I had not considered that. I’m rooming with two others so this is a stroke of brilliance!
Even princesses need science!

Here’s my day schedule. I’m leading 1 conversation starter, have 3 days of Council and 3 days of moderating Ignite sessions. I’d highly recommend attending the Ignite sessions.
Thursday night: The ALATT All-Conference Pre-Party. Among my friends I’ve been saying this is the hardest…
All I can say is: YAY!
Any noise or experimental musicians attending ALA 2014 Annual in Vegas?
Any circuit benders, hackers or Makey Makey heads attending?
We should plan a thing!
Pass it on if you know someone.

Noisemakers? I know you’re out there!
My library just got Freegal* and since I am hopeless at new music I figured I’d use it as a springboard to actually getting to know new things? But the problem is I am so awful at new music that I barely even know where to start.
For those of you that don’t know, Freegal lets you download 3-5…
I am so very ashamed to admit that we have had this service for a REALLY long time and I’ve yet to use it. New goal of the week! Your post has inspired me to download my first Freegal song. I’ll get Happy by Pharrell since it’s currently one of my kids’ favorites. Ooooh….I wonder if they have any songs from Frozen.
I know, when we first got Freegal I checked to see if they had any My Morning Jacket downloads…that was my primary form of measurement on whether I approved of Freegal. They did.
So, yay! New project for the day. Thanks Librarian Pirate!
