ALA Mid-Winter, Coffees & Books… Springshare is Seattle Bound!

How excited are we?! Any day of the year, Seattle is a dream destination. It has a lovely skyline, is home to bookstore after bookstore filled with new, used & collectible books gathered in super charming shops. Coffee is at the top of the food pyramid. All that spells, let’s do this. But, add to that — an invasion of Librarians upon the city, January 25-29, and our Springys will wake up extra early to fight you for the window seat!

While you’re at ALA Mid-Winter, come see us in Booth #1004. Although we won’t be throwing any giant fresh fish at you, you can catch our incredible presentation lineup!

For those of you who are home minding the library. Stay tuned! We’ll be live streaming some of these amazing sessions. Head over to our Springshare Facebook Page at the scheduled local Seattle time and you’ll be right there with us. You can even ask questions in the comments area. We’ll make sure the speaker sees them so you can get answers.
