DC Public Library at the Public Library Association Conference

plaFrom March 12-15, in Indianapolis, Ind., librarians from the DC Public Library joined thousands of like-minded librarians from all over the United States and Canada.

We met to learn from each other, to inspire each other, and to brainstorm with each other the best ways to serve our public library patrons.
It was a wonderful opportunity to get fresh ideas, and to come back to our libraries motivated and excited to make them the best they can be.

One of the highlights of the conference was listening to closing speaker, author David Sedaris. He regaled the audience with hilarious, poignant and very moving personal stories and observations of the world around him.

If you've never had the pleasure of hearing him speak, don't worry; we have many of his recordings available as audio books, books on CD and playaways, all read by Mr. Sedaris himself.

These recordings come with a warning: "If you are driving, pull over. If you are at work, close your door-unless you don't mind your colleagues seeing you doubled over, in tears, on your office floor."

Try the following audio books if you need a laugh:
