LDC at the 2009 ALA Annual Conference, July 11-14, 2009

LDC is happy to report that our exhibit at ALA 2009 went off without a hitch! The American Library Association’s (ALA) annual conference was located in Chicago, IL and attracted over 20,000 exhibitors and attendees. We met  our members face to face, connected with new associates in a dynamically-hosted conference setting and learned more about the needs of the library community. We hope to see you all next year!
