We just wanted to share a little more about what we are going to talk about.

In this presentation we will share a success story of a project that was sparked at ALA. The project is a cross-border conference that brings together all types of librarians from Southern California and Baja California, called Creando Enlaces. We held the third annual conference in March 2014. We will discuss how the project came about and how you can bring ideas from ALA to life in your community. Bring an idea or inspiration and leave with tools to ignite your own project! Hope to see you there!
