2005 NYLA Conference
I returned from attending the 2005 NYLA Conference in Buffalo, New York this past Thursday. Unfortunately, I missed most of the conference, but the part I did catch was wonderful! Conferences and other professional gatherings are valuable opportunities for professional development for all librarians, but perhaps particularly for youth services librarians. Whether we work in schools or public libraries, we are often working alone, or are the only professional focused primarily on the needs of our young patrons. The camraderie that develops in a room full of youth services librarians is just as valuable as the information you take away from the experience.
