SCLA Keynote with Helene Blowers
The past few weeks have been terribly busy at work, with many major projects in the final stages, including a system-wide VoIP telephone migration. So it was especially nice to be able to get away, even if only for two days, to Columbia, South Carolina, to join Helene Blowers in giving the closing keynote at the South Carolina Library Association annual conference. Outgoing SCLA president Quincy Pugh, incoming president Curtis Rogers and everyone with SCLA did a bang-up job putting together one fantastic and informative conference.
As Helene says in her post, we put together some of Lynette Webb's provocative images, Interesting Snippets, and the slideshow can be viewed here.
No matter how many conferences I go to or participate in I never fail to come away reinvigorated with new-found energy. This conference was no different. Talking with Helene and everyone at SCLA just reinforced my belief that change, though often difficult, can be very good. Listening to the many questions and comments we got during our presentation made me realize how lucky librarianship is to have so many dedicated and giving people who go to work every day with the desire to help others. I am proud to be able to call myself a librarian.
Thank you SCLA for a wonderful time.
