What are you doing at #alaac14? Come to a Guerrilla Storytime!

Exactly one month from today, I'll be one of those library folks headed to Las Vegas for the 2014 ALA Annual Conference. There's lots to look forward to at this conference, from the 2014 Newbery celebrations, to the program sessions, to the publisher events, to the presentations. And that's not even taking into account the flashy bonus that is Las Vegas itself.

One of the things I'm most excited about, however, is Guerrilla Storytime.

Guerrilla Storytime made its debut at the 2013 ALA Annual Conference in Chicago, and since then, it's become something of a training and advocacy phenomenon. And so, obviously, it must take place with even more energy this year, on its first anniversary!

We the Joint Chiefs of the Storytime Underground hope you'll be able to stop by any (or all!) of the four Guerrilla Storytimes that'll be taking place in Vegas in June:
  • Friday, June 27 @ 1 p.m.
  • Saturday, June 28 @ 9 a.m.
  • Sunday, June 29 @ 11:30 a.m.
  • Monday, June 30 @ 3 p.m.

All Guerrilla Storytimes will take place in the Networking Uncommons space at the convention center, and everyone--EVERYONE!--is welcome to attend. Participation optional!

Note: Because we like to share what happens at Guerrilla Storytimes with the Storytime Underground community at large, we would love to have some folks volunteer to take notes, pictures, and/or videos of the Guerrilla Storytimes they attend. The more we crowd-source the recording of these training and advocacy events, the more benefit they can provide. If you're interested, let us know on the Storytime Underground Facebook group!
