Cafe Du Monde meet up
We’re having a LibraryThing meet up in New Orleans! Tim and I will be around for the ALA Annual Conference, and LT member benitastrnad is coordinating a meet up.*

So, anyone who will be in New Orleans, LA for the ALA Conference, or who live in the area, can meet-up at the Cafe Du Monde on Jackson Square from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, June 25, 2011. This is a buy your own beignets and coffee event where we can gather to meet and talk about books, reading, and LibraryThing.

The Cafe Du Monde is a short distance from the New Orleans convention center by trolley or a short walk to Jackson Square from most of the main convention hotels. The Cafe Du Monde is a NOLA French Market tradition since 1862, famous for it’s chicory laced coffee and a Cajun pastry called beignets. Come join us!

Free “exhibits-only” pass to ALA
Since we’re exhibiting at ALA this year, we also have some free badges to give out. They’re exhibit-only, so you can’t get into the sessions, but it’ll let you in to walk around the exhibits, snag some free ARCs, and, of course, stop by the LibraryThing booth (booth 827) to meet Tim and Abby.

Just click here and it’ll walk you through the registration process.

*many thanks to her, since not only do I not know the area at all, I’m a little crazy getting prepared for ALA!

    Thanks for making it so easy to get an ALA Exhibits pass. I just used the $25 you saved me to purchase a LibraryThing lifetime membership. I should have done that long ago. You guys are awesome!

  2. Kathryn says:

    Oh! I soooo wish I could go! It would be such fun and I really miss New Orleans and of course the beignets and iced cold cafe au lait!

  3. Looking foward to the conference-will have to check out your booth!

    We only managed one day, and it was terrific! Thanks again for the passes. Free books, and meeting y’all was neat. 🙂
