I would like to attend TMC 2010, especially because I want an elementary school library perspective to be present. I'd also heartily recommend June Rysinski attend to talk about the transformations occuring in her board. I intend on writing a paper (either specifically for TMC or I will use my MEd capping paper), so Carol, please consider this notification. However, my challenge or concern is being able to afford to come to Edmonton. I have several months to try and work on that - any suggestions would be most welcome.
