Librarians Robin Satterwhite and Gwen Gregory were among the 18,000 librarians to attend the American Library Association 2006 annual conference in New Orleans June 23-27. This was the first large conference in the city since last year's hurricanes and flooding. Our experiences were generally favorable - the weather was hot and humid, but the people were very friendly, our accommodations were good, and the food was fine. Many businesses are still closed or are open reduced hours. We attended a number of interesting presentations and brought back some great ideas.
