FLA Conference 2013

Hello!  I hoped that you all enjoyed your spring break! Here is a little update from your EU librarians.

This past week was the annual Florida Library Association conference which was located in the heart of Orlando at the beautiful Hilton hotel. The Orlando and Sarasota campus librarians and the Library Director were all able to attend this year’s conference. FLA is that time of the year where librarians, library professionals, and library supporters across the state of Florida gather for a rumpus good time filled with informative presentations, exhibitions, poster sessions, meetings and professional networking opportunities.  Our very own Library Director, Zach English, was actually a presenter for the “Hot Topics in Intellectual Freedom” workshop which was quite informative and interesting.

Overall, FLA exceeded our expectations! It was an amazing experience not only for professional development growth but we were also given the chance to reconnect with old friends while also making new ones in the process.

As spring break comes to an end we will leave you with a little piece of refreshing humor by Bill Barnes the co-writer of Unshelved who was a guest speaker at FLA:
