We have just returned from the 2007 ALA Annual conference. Key events included: the Honor Dance at the National Museum of the American Indian (watch for our YouTube clip), chairing Councile for the first time (at 1 hour's notice!), chairing the ALA Executive Board for the first time, attending the Spectrum luncheon, introducing Ken Burns at the Auditorium Speaker series, meeting Vartan Gregorian, giving greetings at gatherings of International Librarians, presenting at the Planning and Budget Assembly, hosting events in my room, and helping organize and attend the Inaugural banquet.

My new gavel is in the mail and I have new business cards!

100 years ago yesterday: first Kentucky Library Conference!
