Salinas Public Library @ CLA 2008

November 14 - 16 the California Library Association’s Annual Conference & Exhibition was held in San José, CA. Salinas Public Library represented all weekend in booth #714.

Our goal was to connect with conference attendees as they search for the best in products, services and technologies to prepare themselves and their workplaces for the future. We spoke with many California librarians who were interested in the present condition of the Salinas Library. We had one thing to say...

We are back!

Salinas Public Library survived its nationally publicized 2005 crisis. The community of Salinas rallied to save their library. Now our library is stronger than ever and is celebrating its centennial year.

We gave everyone who dropped by our booth the chance to take their photo with John Steinbeck (Salinas is John Steinbeck's hometown). This photo opportunity was made possible using a green screen and an Apple MacBook with Photo Booth software.

We took 115 photos and sent everyone who participated a copy of their photo via email. We also posted the photos taken at CLA on our Flickr page.
