It was another busy and exciting day at #ala2013. Thursday and Friday were the appetizers of Annual, but now we’re getting to the main courses! Saturday was the first full day of the exhibits and attendees were bustling all over the Exhibit Hall chatting with over 800 exhibitors and grabbing some very sweet swag. Attendees enjoyed the “Best of the Second City” at the ALA/ProQuest Scholarship Bash, which featured hilarious library jokes and improvisation.

Something unexpected is bound to happen to you:

especially not in the Top 10 Tweets. . .
. . . because librarians are NOT quiet and proud of it. . .
. . . and even make humble into awesomesauce!
