Heading home

I’m leaving Philadelphia today. This was my first ALA Midwinter and it was interesting. It is all meetings and exhibits and no sessions as I know them from the annual conference. The exhibits were fun and interesting as always. We are looking at some new resources and services in our Information Center so it was helpful to talk to vendors. For the “fun” part I would have to say that Swets won the prize. They had a Rocky impersonator in sweats, towel, black eye, etc.  I was told that I could pose for a photo with Rocky so I asked him and he yelled, “Yo, Adrian.” A Swets rep took the photo and told me that, “it’s going to be hard to be Adrian.” Since this was the first morning of exhibits I understood completely.

This was my first trip to Philadelphia and I enjoyed it. The conference was excellent and the city interesting. Our hotel is attached to the Reading Terminal – an historical terminal that is now like a food booth/farmer’s market of local foods. By the way… Reading Terminal was connected to the Reading Railroad – does anyone still play Monopoly? This is the real deal. The Pennsylvania Railroad isn’t too far away.
