Top Ten Tweets ALAMW20

Day two of #alaac19 had so many amazing sessions and speakers!

While today was most people’s second day at the conference, we also welcomed a lot of first time and first day attendees!

Heading to my first @ALALibrary conference. If you see me wandering around in a daze, please say hi!

We've got a future librarian in the making

…but for some of us, it was not our first rodeo.

I woke up early today and I cannot have coffee. Not happy!

Once we had our coffee, it was time to get inspired by some of the speakers.

"There is nothing in life we do alone"—Sonia Sotomayor

"We need to start thinking abt libraries as essential social infrastructure and as librarians as being part of democratic culture in this country."

Even Carla Hayden has an inspiring speaker she has to tweet about!

What a moment to meet Palaces for the People author @EricKlinenberg. He says: "Libraries stand for and exemplify something that needs defending: the public institutions that — even in an age of atomization and inequality —serve as bedrocks of civic society."

You also grabbed all the ribbons to showoff your house pride or interests.

Hogwarts house badge ribbons: color coded and with the Dewey call number for the animal subject of the house mascot. God I'm going into the right profession.

And met some of your favorite authors on the exhibit floor.

I'm in paradise.

Oh my God. #ALAAC19 has been full of great moments, but none like this: not only did I meet FRICKIN @angiecthomas, but upon hearing about my book, she high-fives me, yelled to the crowd, "EVERYONE BUY HIS BOOK!" and said I better sell it or she will. Angie, just... thank you.

Or joined the final stop of ALA President Loida Garcia-Febo’s Libraries = Strong Communities tour.

More from the closing of my National Library Tour Libraries=Strong Communities advocacy effort!

After the sessions were over it was time for the evening events and awards to begin!

Let the fun begin!

Waiting to hear from @LauraMLippman, @KieseLaymon, and @rebeccamakkai. The 2019 #ALA_Carnegie Medals Ceremony starts at 8 pm!
