I was privileged to attend this year's Conference of CSLA from August 27th through the 30th. Beautiful natural setting and great workshops to learn and be inspired. They even inspired me to make plans for our own local Workshop Day this coming April. Stay tuned for more details. Our own North Texas Chapter members made an excellent presence. Ralph Hartsock was one of the panelist in a workshop via Skype and Jeri Barker was honored as the Outstanding Congregational Librarian of the year. Congratulations!
