The 2020 ALA Midwinter Meeting kicked off with plenty of inspiration, all of the new books, and only a little bit of grumbling from the pets we left behind.

Finally registration was open and the first day of #alamw20 began! First thing to do was to grab all the fun ribbons from the ALA Lounge before they disappear.

While there was learning done inside sessions, there were also valuable lessons being taught outside of the sessions.

Then it was time for Wes Moore to kick off the inspiration for the rest of the conference!

Of course, our Executive Board checked out his session as well.


After Wes Moore, we all hit the exhibit floor and grabbed all the ARCs possible. (With several more to grab the rest of the conference.)

With a long day behind us, most of us did end up with cheesesteak and with angry messages from our cats.

To our #alaleftbehind folks, make sure to continue to follow the conference with the #alamw20 hashtag!

Continue tweeting with #alamw20—you might find yourself in tomorrow’s roundup.
