ALA Annual 2017, Chicago & Data Detox Day at Brooklyn Public Library!

I just got back from wonderful Chicago and the American Library Association Annual Conference! I love Chicago, and I had a great time exploring the all the riverwalks and lakefront promenades between conference sessions! The only disappointing part of attending the conference this year is that I missed Data Detox Day at Brooklyn Public Library!

Bklyn Incubator Grant: Clinton Hill Library Garden

Our grant-funded garden project is well underway at the Clinton Hill branch library!
