I remember that conversation at one of the BCPL fundraisers, Tyler!
Pam Mann (she, her)
44:07
I was really involved with the WV Library Association, serving as chair/co-chair (several times) of their Children's Roundtable, and helping with conference planning (and presenting at the conference a few times.) I'd love to get that involved here at some point.

If we're not live this year, how is my pub quiz team (last year's CHAMPS!) going to pick up their cheesy prizes? LOL
Megan Sutherland
57:52
Great question, Pam! I'm sure we can arrange a delivery via MILO. Our libraries are still accumulating cheesy prizes :)
Monica McAbee (she/her/hers)
58:20
That's "Fabulous" Prizes.
Megan Sutherland
58:30
Yes, Monica!
Pam Mann (she, her)
58:54
Oh...yeah....I mean FABULOUS prizes!
Pam Mann (she, her)
59:31
We have some great mugs we can donate! Let me know where to send them.

Virtual in fall/In person in spring sounds like a cool idea

Nerdiest Conference Ever, per Nay, works for me.....(I'm just waiting for my Administration to do the registrations)
Pam Mann (she, her)
01:09:50
I like having the conference in a single week. I think it will be much easier to plan that time into my schedule. I found myself missing a lot of live programs this year because they were way spread out. I'm also waiting for approval from above.
Monica McAbee (she/her/hers)
01:10:54
Tyler, what book can you WARN US OFF OF?
Ella Alonso
01:11:04
Please trash talk the book.

Shall we aim for our theme for 2022 to be Nerdiest Conference Ever: Now Somehow Even More Nerdy?
Megan Sutherland
01:12:05
I like it Kelsey!
Monica McAbee (she/her/hers)
01:12:13
I might use that for my Turkey Month turkey reviews for my SciFi club, thanks!
Pam Mann (she, her)
01:12:19
A lofty goal!
Monica McAbee (she/her/hers)
01:13:05
Oh, Kelsey - yes.
Pam Mann (she, her)
01:13:12
I love books narrated by the author.
Pam Mann (she, her)
01:13:39
One for each eye? ;)

01:14:01
Oh wow, that was a well written but difficult book to read! (My Dark Vanessa)
kelsey hughes
01:14:15
Yes. That book broke my heart and also my brain a little bit
Monica McAbee (she/her/hers)
01:14:35
Tyler, I agree that What Doesn't Kill You... was well worth the time!
Monica McAbee (she/her/hers)
01:15:22
DISCWORLD, YAY!
Pam Mann (she, her)
01:15:50
Sigh.... Discworld.....
Monica McAbee (she/her/hers)

We miss Sir Terry.

01:16:22
What I just held up was a print of The Librarian from Discworld, in case you were wondering why I was suddenly holding up a picture of an orangutan.
Joseph Thompson
