Wow, I have seriously neglected you, my bilingual programming blog! Please accept my apologies and know I will try to tend to you with much more care from this point forward!
Finishing my MLIS program and finally getting my degree, landing my first Youth Services Librarian job at my dream library, and moving to Lexinton, Kentucky have kept me very busy this summer. Truly, I feel absolutely blessed. There is so much to share, from the exciting sessions I attended at ALA in Chicago a few weeks ago, to preparing for bilingual storytime which begins in September, to the new and exciting world of programming for school agers, tweens and teens! I will return to the world of blogging to share it all with you soon!
But for today, let me just shout out a few quick thoughts that are on my mind:

Open Source Soluntions for libraries is the way of the future...Replace TLC with Koha NOW!
I love the blend of English, Spanish, and all things Spanglish in new environment.
Raising Reader packets is an idea I will definitely be stealing for Village.
