Report from Library-land

Opening session at the Texas Library Association Conference with David Balducci


Everything you need to know about helping children read from reading expert Dick Allington: Volume and access.
Sounds like the library to me.


Author Katherine Center. Her new book was on my wishlist. And I got a copy!


The usual conference crazies.


Amazing authors. L to R: Mac Barnett, David Small and Sarah Weeks, Ed Young.


Teen book frenzy.


First place at the librarian 5K!


211 books scored!

    1. All giveaways. A big part of the fun of the conference is the thrill of the hunt.
