This is not a drill. I repeat: THIS IS NOT A DRILL! I am hyperventilating, and running around the room, to express my absolute gratitude for being this year's Region One Fall Media Conference Keynote Speaker! Once again, I teamed up with Harlingen CISD librarian, Vilia Garcia, to deliver an AMAZING presentation about social media in libraries. Our focus was to encourage librarians from across the valley to gain momentum in creating a social media presence for their libraries. Our work is valuable and we need to market ourselves to ensure the viability of our careers! I am so happy to have networked with amazing librarians from across the valley and cannot wait to see what we all have in store to create an amazing culture of librarianship in the RGV! tinyurl.com/rgvlibrarylife
