We’re setting up the ALA Membership Pavilion today in the exhibits, booth 2525, and are getting ready to welcome members from around the world at the exhibits opening tonight (Friday) from 5:30 - 7:30pm. Every division and round table in the association has a space in the pavilion where visitors can learn more about the community. Featured conference programs, publications, awards information and committee information are available. While we haven’t yet finished unpacking, there are always fun give-aways, too. I’ll post pictures when we do.

As of today, over 1,100 fellow attendees to ALA Annual Conference in D.C. are registered for the big rally at the Upper Senate Park on Capitol Hill for Library Advocacy Day. While you can ‘just come’ on Tuesday, June 29th from 10:30 - 12n, having you preregistered will help us provide enough t-shirts, bottled water and information cards for all rally participants. Click through this helpful guide to registering for LAD and visit www.ala.org/lad to get started.
