ALA anyone?

I’m curious – who is (or isn’t) going to ALA in New Orleans this summer?

I’ve found some deals that put attending for a few days into the realm of possibility for me, and am curious to hear other perspectives.

I need to decide by March 3rd to get the discounted registration rate, and knowing I’d have acquaintances to meet up with would be a big plus.

  1. I certainly plan to be there (and registered at the *real* discounted early-bird rate). New Orleans needs visitors more than it needs anything else; a substantial portion of the people who have returned earn their living in the tourist industry; and, despite the heat and humidity, it’s not a bad town for ALA.

  2. I am going to ALA as well. I have never been to New Orleans, so I won’t be missing the way it was. It seems like the right thing to do, give the community with our lunches and hotel registration. I also think that it will be a great opportunity to socialize with librarians from the area, which I must say I haven’t had the privilege of meeting.
