perhaps a Librarian will understand…

library personnel

I attended a professional development day, yesterday and at the end of the day they had a prize draw. Name out of the salad bowl. A man won, the only male librarian present – except he had left early so they redraw the prize.

I won a fully expenses paid interstate trip to … a Librarians’ Conference!

Dear reader, I am such a Library Geek that I am excited beyond belief.

Sometimes coming second really works in your favour!

  1. yes, I get it. If I had ever won a free ride to any ALA conference before I retired I’d have been thrilled. As it happens in my entire library career I not once attended one. I did attend a PLA as a hostess in my home city but that’s it.

  2. Professional conferences can be fun, depending on the city they’re held in and the themes the organizers chose for the event. It probably says much that I’m no longer interested in literary deconstruction and papers on the equivalence of death and sexual tension in Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying: but I would love to attend a teachers’ conference, especially if all of the expenses were paid for!

    I hope you have fun at the librarians’ conference! You certainly deserve it! πŸ™‚

  3. I’m not totally convinced you didn’t tie him up to a tree in the park…..or something worse. I’ll keep an eye on the newspapers. πŸ™‚
