Facebooking the AJL Conference

The 48th Annual Association of Jewish Libraries Conference in Houston, Texas starts in one week! I am looking forward to seeing many of you there, but I hope that those who can't join us in person will keep an eye on Facebook for the duration of the conference (June 16-19). We'll be posting photos and status updates live from Houston to www.facebook.com/jewishlibraries.

If you are not a Facebook user, don't worry! You don't have to sign up or log in to view AJL's Facebook page! Just go towww.facebook.com/jewishlibraries and you'll see everything we post!

If you ARE a Facebook user, please click Like on AJL's page if you haven't already. This will allow you to receive our posts in your news feed, and it will mean you can post comments on our photos and status updates! We would LOVE to hear from you, so please do add your "likes" and comments once we start posting from the conference!

To those who will be in Houston - I'd be happy to have additional volunteers help Facebook the conference! If you're interested, send a friend request to Heidi Rabinowitz Estrin (if we're not FB friends already) and message me to let me know you'd like to be part of the fun!

See you all soon in Houston and on Facebook!
