LibraryCall is on the road again! This week, two of our team members are down south at the Texas Library Association conference in Fort Worth. Amanda Jacobs Foust, our Outreach and Accounts Manager reports, “It’s been a pleasure to be first time exhibitors at TLA. We’ve enjoyed talking and connecting with such a wide range of library staff - especially so many school libraries! Plus we get to enjoy lots of Texas tacos and BBQ in beautiful Fort Worth while we work!”
It's finally starting to feel like spring. What a re-leaf!
Yep, we’re here for your Thursday afternoon dad jokes AND your spring-themed Dial-A-Story recordings! We hope you find these stories iris-istible.

We talked to hundreds of librarians in just a few days of exhibiting, which was wonderful (and maybe a tiny bit exhausting after two years of isolation!) Our time connecting with conference attendees reminded us of how passionate and conscientious library staff are in their approach to serving their communities. We are honored to be a small part of helping you do what you do so well.

We had a request for winter story suggestions, so I thought I’d pop in and share a quick list with you before the Thanksgiving holiday.
