Announcing Library Journal Day of Dialog Schedule

During BEA, Library Journal always sponsors 1 day just for Librarians.  This year it is on Wednesday, May 11th from 9am-6pm.  You can click here for all of the details and pricing. I already have a ticket and there is still space if you are interested. It is a great deal and includes breakfast and lunch.

This is an event that is 100% focused on improving our service to leisure readers.

Today, they released the finalized schedule. For those of you on the fence, this may help.

Here is the link to the schedule which I have also copied below. I hope to see many of you there.  And if you cannot make it, I will be among those who will be live tweeting, so you can follow on Twitter or via the widget on the side of this blog for those of you who are not on Twitter. [There is a sizable group I know who use this scroll. You will not be left in the dark.]
