LHRT Events in Orlando

All are invited to join the Library History Round Table for an exciting slate of library history events at ALA Annual.   Conveniently, everything is in the same hotel, so no need to brave the harsh summer sun between meetings.  I look forward to seeing many of you there and having a fun and informative day talking about history!
