RE MLW 2008: We look forward to seeing everyone in Monterey! Just want to clarify the hotel: the conference rate is prevailing per diem: currently $123, going to $133 on 10/1, possibly will drop again by 12/7-12 (one never knows but them do seem to hiccup in Oct then settle down). However, you'll pay the prevailing GSA rate at checkin. Note that the MLW 2008 room block is good through 6 November. I suggest that you make reservations soon and cancel later if circumstances change. See you in December.

This came from the FAFLRT listserv, re stories wanted for First Lady
The ALA Washington Office has been working with the Obama Administration since the Presidential election to share information about the role of libraries in American society. At the same time, First Lady Michelle Obama has taken a keen interest in both public service and the challenges facing military families. The ALA Washington Office would like to share stories of some military libraries with the Office of the First Lady to highlight their role in supporting our military and their families.
The FAFLRT Leadership has volunteered to collect these stories and assemble some information about the broad diversity of libraries within our military in order to provide context for the stories that ALA will share with the First Lady. Unfortunately, there is a tight turn-around on this project. We need to have our stories no later than Thursday, March 26, 2009 so that we can assemble the material for delivery to the ALA Washington Office by the end of the day Friday, March 27.
You may hear about this effort from other channels. The ALA Washington Office has reached out to leaders within the military libraries community as well. However you wish to contribute, it is our hope that the information will be consolidated into a consistent message of the power of libraries to support our country, our service members, veterans, and military families. The FAFLRT Leadership will also be sharing this call with the SLA Military Libraries Division, Terri Kirk, ALA Executive Board liaison to FAFLRT, and others so that we can reach the largest possible number of military librarians with this request.
What we need from you is just a couple of paragraphs describing your library, who it serves, and the role it plays in supporting our military, our service members, veterans, and/or their families. We would like stories that demonstrate what libraries have meant to members and veterans of the Armed Forces as well as their families or stories that demonstrate how additional funding could enhance the role of libraries and the roles they serve. We would also like to demonstrate the broad diversity of libraries serving our military: base libraries, school and academic libraries, veterans center and hospital libraries, research and technical libraries, and unique collections of history, science, law, and medicine.
Please consider sharing your story with FAFLRT and the ALA Washington Office so that we can present the First Lady with a truly diverse and inspiring collection of stories about our military libraries. Your stories should be sent to Richard Huffine at firstname.lastname@example.org. Richard can also be reached at 202-253-3511.
This is a unique opportunity and we hope that you will contribute to this effort with the story of your library.

Easier to use Blog posts v. email v. MLD Wiki for project communitcations and collaborations? -- this post is a test of that concept and abilities!?
I'm wondering and testing if the 2012 MLW webwork can be socialized via this blog?

Ron Joe, I can post an original blog post on this topic and we could try a thread from there. Adding a haphazard thread to whatever post someone ataches a string might make it hard to control
