Attention independent school librarians, and/or people who like to hang out with independent school librarians:
At the ALA conference, where the tribe gathers annually to bond, debate, and grab as many ARCS as possible, the Independent School Section (ISS) of AASL is hosting several greatevents, including a tour of local schools, a dinner out, an autism preconference, and the ever popularISS Social. Which brings me to the point of this post.
