    Hey Librarians/Disney Fans! I will be attending the American Library Association Conference in Anaheim this June 27 - July 4. Is there anyone interested in meeting up that will also be there for the conference? I wonder how many librarian/Disney fans there are out there?!?!?!? : )

    Looking over the conference schedule (early bird registration ends tomorrow) and it seems like a meet would make sense during the ALA/Proquest Scholarship Bash on Saturday Night. Otherwise we can meet up on Monday evening. Let me know your thoughts.

    Hey Bompy! I'll be there for the Bash. Just ordered my 5-day park hoppers this week. I'm arriving Wed. 6/25 and leaving Wed. 7/2.

    I'll be with a bunch of wild school librarians from Massachusetts. :cool1: There have to be more Disney-fan librarians out there. Have you thought about postng something on the ALA Annual wiki?

    Do any librarians know if ProQuest have rented out the entire park for the Scholarship bash? The closing times on the calendar are normal but I know that sometimes that does not mean that they don't close down early for special events.

    Don't know if I will be anywhere near the meeting site at 8:45 but will put it in my calendar.

    Hi NannyB!
    The parks are open to the public for their usual hours during the Bash. Hope to see you there! :hippie:

    I designed a new shirt for our ALA DisMeet! :cutie: I have not heard from Zazzle about the content so I think this secon attempt with a new design worked out better (if I should hear from them I will notify you all ASAP).

    Check out the tee at: http://www.zazzle.com/bompy213

    Hope to see fellow DisMeeters in these "unofficial" tees! Don't forget that you can choose to have the artwork on a different style tee then the one I chose.

    Oh, and you can use promo code: BJFKSXHRJLIIYVUAOVPN Good for $5 off a purchase over $20. Expires 6/8/08.

    See you Saturday, June 28th!!!!
