I had a fantastic time at the Texas Library Association (or TLA) conference in Austin, Texas last week! I learned A LOT about the craft of school librarianship as well as gained some great ideas to implement in the Sonntag library in the very near future. I had the privilege of meeting authors, illustrators, poets, as well as a number of other librarians from around the great state of Texas. I hope that what I learned will help continue to shape the Sonntag library. Furthermore, I hope that the Sonntag library will continue to be a great place for students, teachers, parents, and the community to learn and enjoy!
Check out the pictures below to take a peek into my journey at TLA:
