I went to the mailbox this Saturday morning and was excited to see the new arrivals. UWM has given me free subscriptions to library journals. Let me say it again, for FREE. I will be receiving the School Library Journal and Library Journal for approximately 12-20 months. As soon as I arrived home, I highlighted all the programs that I would like to attend while at the ALA conference.
