The skies cleared in Portland today. After attending a morning preconference (report coming), I enjoyed Indian cuisine and then a hike in Forest Park with webmaster/librarian/friend Aaron Schmidt, who is lucky enough to live right in Portland. (You make your own luck.) From the trail we got this view of Mount St. Helens. When I got back to the hotel, I discovered that I can now see both Mount St. Helens and Mount Hood from my room. Aaron, being a typical librarian, has been the top of both. Incredible.
I am a reference librarian at the Thomas Ford Memorial Library who graduated from the University of Texas at Austin. I have worked in public libraries in Texas, Missouri, and Illinois. I am interested in promoting reference services and the reading of good books.
