Pop Goes the Library

Using Pop Culture to Make Libraries Better.

by Sophie Brookover, Liz Burns, Melissa Rabey, Susan Quinn, and John Klima. We're librarians. We're pop culture mavens. We're Pop Culture Librarians.



Idea totally & utterly stolen from Heidi (who is not only a rockin' librarian, but also a fellow Bryn Mawr alum).

Heidi is a Seattle native, so she's got plenty of scoop on where to eat & how to get around. Also potentially useful in this regard: the ALA Midwinter Meeting Wiki.

Here's my schedule, for now:

Saturday, January 20
ALA-APA Fundraising Committee, 10:30-12:30
YALSA Gaming Interest Group, 1:30-2:30
Quick Picks for Reluctant YA Readers, 2:30-3:30
YALSA Publications Committee, 4-6 PM
Seattle Public Library Atherton Reception with the divine Liz B, 7-9 PM

Sunday, January 21

Quick Picks, 1:30-3:30
YALSA Board II, 4-6 OR Pop Culture in Libraries, 4-6
YALSA 50th Anniversary Kick-Off, 7-9 PM

Monday, January 22 -- Happy Birthday, Mom!
Youth Media Awards, 8-9 AM
ALA Exec Board Forum, 11:30 AM (re-check time)

YALSA/ALSC/AASL Joint Membership Reception 6-8 PM

Somewhere in there, I also plan to have a meal or drinks with Rochelle, Jill, Jaina and my library school pal Chris.

I'm staying at the Sheraton, and it'll be best to reach me by cell. E-mail or IM me if you want the number.
