ALA Conference Day Four

Monday I found myself attending a panel on Graphic Novels, a recent personal interest of mines. It was a great panel talk and even though it was in the exhibit hall the speakers were great and able to keep me interested. I’m glad to see that graphic novels are starting to gain popularity among librarians as a great tool for those who are looking for a non-traditional read. While they are normally longer than a comic they tend to read faster than a normal novel and they hold just as much information and intrest as one.

After walking the floor for a while I decided to take advantage of my time in Washington and do a bit of exploring outside of the convention center and that of the surrounding area of the hotel.

So I headed to Chinatown. It was fun to walk the small area and just be a tourist. This compact area that took up a couple of blocks was jammed packed with history and architectural details.
