I want to thank the wonderful educators of the Griffin-Spalding County School System in Griffin, Georgia for inviting me to present a keynote speech and four concurrent sessions this past week at their Teachers as Learners Conference. Below are resources from two days of learning and sharing!
I was extremely honored to present “Transliterate Libraries: Creating Conversations for Portable, Participatory, and Personalized Learning” yesterday at the 79th ABQLA Conference in Montreal (please see http://www.abqla.qc.ca/). I am most grateful for this opportunity to share and learn with others as well as the incredible hospitality from everyone who participated in the conference—thank you for making me feel so welcome and for letting me learn from you.

I want to give a special thanks to the conference committee as well as committee member Wendy Wayling of the Westmount Public Library for inviting me to the conference and for making me feel so welcome during my stay in Montreal; a heartfelt thank you also goes out to Babar Books, my session sponsor. A heartfelt thank you also to Julie-Anne Cardella and her husband Pierre, Lora Baiocco, Leticia Cuenca, Lisa Milner, and Wendy Wayling for organizing our fun (and delicious!) dinner Wednesday evening—I am very happy to say I now the joys of fried goat cheese drizzled in honey and caramelized onions!
I’d also like to extend a special thank you to Sue Kretzer for taking time to drive me over to Niagara Falls-–I was absolutely thrilled to see this magnificent and awe-inspiring force of nature. Getting to see such a beautiful natural wonder was the perfect finishing touch to a special weekend—thank you, Sue!
