Time flies (so do airplanes) and here we are!

There is, indeed, a whole lotta noise happening in Long Beach, as the California Library Association swings into its 115th annual conference. In spite of airport closures and cancelled flights, everyone is now here and catching the sound waves as we learn about “It’s All about Them,” with Craig Gerhart of the International City/County Managers Association; Eureka! at the Carnival aisle (425/426) in the Exhibits; the new immigration education project rolling out from the USCIS and IMLS agreement; and more, more, more!

To learn more about yesterday’s excellent and timely preconference with Mr Gerhart (whose appearance was sponsored by Infopeople and CLA’s Legislation Group), see #allthem with #clanoise on Twitter.

To enjoy the Carnival, visit the Infopeople booth during the no conflict times at conference, this afternoon at 2 pm and tomorrow morning as well.

Other programs that look really good for this afternoon’s appreciation and information are “Career Vision: A new approach for job seekers and career changers in the public library,” which will be tweeted out by Infopeople as #careervis with #clanoise, at 1 pm; “Seeds to Trees: Grow your own future bilingual library professionals and advocates,” to be tweeted as #seedstrees with #clanoise, at 2:45; and “Quiet Riot: Activating change from every organizational level,” to be tweeted out as #quietriot with #clanoise, at 4 pm. And that’s just where this attendee will be tweeting. There’s lots, lots more in the ways of programs across the next five hours! Go forth and make some noise!
